United Arab Emirates
Office Apps & Services MVP & Principal Consultant, located in the Abu Dhabi, UAE area.


I am a SharePoint/Office 365 MVP and Principal Consultant (in Abu Dhabi, UAE) with over 20 years' experience from both an information technology and software development background. I've worked closely with SharePoint and Office 365 technologies over the past many years, and have been involved with various large scale software products throughout my career.

I work on a whole range of SharePoint/O365 topics from small jobs to large. My daily experience varies greatly, and often includes anything from working with workflows, InfoPath, BI, and other related topics, to helping to design the infrastructure for large SharePoint deployments, to building out the servers, installations, and the many hours of configuration necessary to properly setup a SharePoint farm.

I also come from a development  background, and work with languages such as JavaScript, TypeScript, React, AJAX, jQuery, XML, HTML, ASP.NET, and C#, with a touch of SQL mixed in.

My certifications / qualifications include: Microsoft Office Servers and Services (formerly SharePoint) MVP, B.Sc. Computer Science from the University of Victoria in BC, Canada, MCITP SharePoint Administrator 2010, MCTS SharePoint 2010 Configuration, MCPD SharePoint Developer 2010, MCTS SharePoint 2010 Application Development, and VCP (VMware).
