I am a Technical Stategy Advisor in Microsoft's Global ISV team. I Manage a Portfolio of Global ISVs totalling over 35 billion in revenue. I work to align Microsoft's emerging technology innovations with ISV product development strategies to insure ISV revenue growth, cost reduction and increased shareholder value.
I often find my self answering the question "what does a strategy advisor do?" by saying that I am a virtual CTO for my partners. And that seems to sum it up "the accidental CTO".
I am married to my wonderful wife Susan and our five children: Johnathan (21), Jamal (16), Bakari (13), Zack (12) and AnnaGail 10). They keep me extremely busy when I am home.
