About CodeJedi.NET

  

My name is William Cornwill, I am the Collaboration Platform Technology Solutions Professional (TSP) for Australia and Pacific Islands. I work for Microsoft Australia.  In this capacity I support the Technical Presales activities around SharePoint. Prior to coming across to Microsoft I was working for a Gold Partner.   I am a beginner bike rider who enjoys riding with my family along the many creek trails and bike paths in Melbourne, Australia.   I recently competed in my first MTB race - 5hr enduro laps around a 9km loop and I got extremely muddy.  I also train in Goju Ryu Karate for fun and exercise and recently graded to 5th Kyu.
