Xbox Compliance Test Engineer

Cut my teeth on testing. Started as the solo functional tester on the Xbox Compliance Team before the original Xbox launched. Promoted to Compliance Test Engineer within two months, executing TCR verification testing. I was able to test broadly, gaining experience in all areas of Compliance testing. Eventually I was appointed as lead A/V tester, and trained new testers as the team expanded.
