Tim Murphy ' http://geekswithblogs.net/tmurphy

Tim is a Solution Architect for PSC Group, LLC where he builds systems for clients using a variety of Microsoft technologies. Having a father who had been in IT since the late 1960's destined him to the life of code and IT shenanigans. Keeping up with as many new products as possible, blogging and speaking takes up most of his spare time when not enjoying spending time with his wife and two boys. Once in a while though he does manage to fit a little time in for photography.  Recent technologies obsessions include Windows Phone and SharePoint.
