Thank you for taking the time to get to know me a little bit better.
It’s always difficult to share who you are with someone else, especially through a bunch of static words on a page. So before I begin I just wanted to say that the best way to get to know me is by engaging me through my social networks (twitter , facebook , linkedin ) or in person. I absolutely love meeting new people and have no doubt that we could both learn a tremendous amount from one another.
To give you a quick picture of who I am I suppose I could start with the fact that I have spoken on a number of different topics at technology conferences, community events, and corporate events. To learn more about my speaking, interviews, or presentations visit this page. I also try my hardest to share the things I learn and know with colleagues, peers, and the public. If you are interested in reading some of the books, whitepapers, or articles I have written, or if you are interested in watching an interview, webinar, or hearing a podcast be sure to visit this page.
Over the past 10+ years I have had the pleasure of working extensively with Microsoft Technologies such as Office 365, Azure, & SharePoint as an end user, developer, administrator, architect, business analyst, and consultant. In this time I defined, architected, developed, and implemented hundreds of Microsoft solutions from small implementations on a single server, to 80,000+ user implementations in international organizations.
This has resulted in me working with truly fantastic people who I admire, and respect for their dedication, intelligence, and generosity. I absolutely love learning, and have found that people seem to love teaching, sharing, and helping as much as I do. As a result I have a habit of getting involved in a great many community events which always leave me a bit smarter, stronger, more humbled and better off.
Some of the communities I have been/still am involved with (as an supporter, organizer, pr lead, VP, etc) are:
- Board Member, of the Microsoft Community Leadership Board
- An Advisor on the Advisor Committee for Endeavour Volunteer Consulting
- Ignite (Ignite Waterloo, Ignite Toronto , Ignite DC, etc)
- TEDx (TEDx Waterloo, TEDx Toronto )
- Tons of Tweetups, and Twitter Groups
- SharePoint & Office 365 User Groups (Toronto , Mississauga, Boston, etc )
- SharePoint Saturdays (Boston , Toronto , DC , Virginia Beach , etc)
- SharePoint Camps and Conferences (Best Practices, SharePoint Symposium, etc)
- Microsoft Technology Conferences (MSIgnite, SPC, TechEd, etc)
- And many many more…
You can probably tell I am pretty passionate about things like technology, communication, social media, psychology, personal growth/development, and business from what I have listed above. I would also absolutely love to hear from you if you have questions, feedback or ideas.
Hoping to help,
