Mike Gunderloy pursued his first Microsoft certification the year the program was introduced, and has earned the MCP, MCT, MCSE, MCDBA, MCAD, and MCSD credentials in the decade since. As lead developer for Lark Group, Inc., Mike has worked with small businesses and Fortune 500 corporations alike, as well as trained many other developers in the use of Microsoft products. He got hooked on computers when you still had to build your own out of parts, and is still passionately interested in cutting-edge software technology. As a long-time member of the editorial staff of MCP Magazine, Mike has remained in close touch with the certification community.
Mike lives on a farm in eastern Washington state, along with his wife and children and an ever changing array of horses, sheep, llamas, geese, turkeys, chickens, ducks, peacocks, cats, dogs, and guinea fowl. When he's not busy testing and writing about software, Mike can usually be found in his garden or greenhouse, trying to persuade recalcitrant vegetables to grow.
