I am a Developer Advocate. I really always have been. During my 20+ years as a software engineer, I've always enjoyed sharing and teaching the things I found exciting in the world of software development. Every chance I got I would peer-mentor, speak at software developer groups, podcast, speak at conferences, create screencasts, blog, write or just bend an ear.
