Premier Field Engineer .NET

I just wanted to post the profile of the Microsoft Premier Field Engineer (PFE) because after month and a half of interviews ...I'm one of them. For my surprise I recently discover that there are only 930 PFE in the entire world, 560 in the Americas and only 2 in Venezuela. One is a PFE in Active Directory and one is a PFE in .Net me!, so that means a lot for me. It will not be easy and tons of work is coming.
