I am a Senior Platform Strategy Advisor at Microsoft Corporation. I mostly engage with marketers and IT leadership at our clients to bring innovative solutions to market that leverages our new and emerging technologies.
I began my IT career in 1989 as a systen software programmer developing printer drivers and interfaces to allow devices to communicate with one another. I have spent much of my career working and consulting for organizations in a variety of industries including financial services, consumer & packaged goods, and retail. My past expertise ranges from Microsoft infrastructure deployment and support through to application development and architecture on .NET and Java platforms. Prior to joining Microsoft I was a member of the enterprise architecture and technology strategy group for a major insurance company in the US. More recently my focus has been on digital marketing and cloud computing.
Beyond sharing information pertaining to new and emerging technologies developed by Microsoft, the purpose of this blog is to share my observations in the area of marketing and technology strategy, managing IT, and enterprise architecture, and to solicit feedback to affect changes within the Microsoft platform that would be beneficial to our clients.
