I am the founder of GotSpeech.Net and GotUC.Net. I serve as an unofficial evangelist for Microsoft Speech Technologies and seek every opportunity to promote the technology.
I was first awarded Microsoft MVP on 07/01/06 and kept that award through 2012. I am the owner of GotSpeech Consulting LLC where I specialize in designing and implementing Microsoft Speech Server and Lync Server 2010 solutions. In addition GotSpeech Consulting also provides training and mentoring on a one-to-one basis.
I am also a Senior Developer/Administrator with Workspace Communications where I spend my time extending the capabilities of and administering Lync Server. For more info visit Workspace Communications
Typically I post about Lync from a developer’s view point, This means that I will be posting about UCMA, the Lync APIs and a lot of Lync PowerShell stuff as those are the types of things I do on a daily basis. I am also interested in developing for smart phones so you will see some posts about that occasionally along with IVR related topics and any other development tool or API that interests me.
You may wonder where I got the “gotspeech guy” nickname. That came from some emails I received from Joe Healy the Microsoft .NET Evangelist for Florida. Joe referred to me as the “gotspeech guy” and I kind of like the sound of it so I tried it. Soon others were referring to me as the “gotspeech guy” and the name has just stuck.
