This is the personal website of Brandon Paddock. As of May 2014, I’m the CTO of Zealyst. You can read a bit more about that here.

In the past I’ve had a medical software start-up, worked for 8 years as a developer at Microsoft, and spent a year designing and building apps like Tweetium and Newseen for my B-side Software business.

At Microsoft I was a Senior SDE on the Windows User Experience team. While there I was responsible for the Search experience and parts of the app model for Windows 8 / Windows RT. Preceding that, I worked on the Windows 7 Explorer and Windows Desktop Search.

Occasionally you’ll find me at Seattle area social events, such as those found on the Social Media Club event calendar.
