Another XML Team introduction - Stan Kitsis

Hi everyone. I have recently joined the Microsoft XML team as a Program Manager focusing on XML Tools. As such, I am open to all feedback you might have regarding the new XML Editor (VS 2005) and any other XML tools that you would like to see in the future. My pre-Microsoft life includes 8 years of enterprise software development experience with a company called Comshare - an ISV that was specializing in developing corporate performance management applications (Comshare was acquired by Geac in 2003, at which time my career with the company came to an end). I have an MBA from the University of Michigan and an undergraduate degree in Computer Science from Case Western Reserve University. I cannot really compete with professional achievements of people like Michael Champion, Dare Obasanjo, Mark Fussell and Michael Rys. Instead, I thought I'd tell you what I do outside of work. While the list is not big, it includes finishing several marathons and triathlons as well as winning a section of the World Open Chess Championship. I also consume dark chocolate in large quantities :)

Well, that's it for now. Wish you all a Happy New Year
