Technical Evangelist for Altaro Software, Public Speaker, Technical Author and Blogger of Microsoft Solutions.
I’ve spent my professional life in the (sometimes) crazy world of IT. I’ve done everything from configuring an end user’s mouse curser to look like a dinosaur to architecting and implementing large scale fault tolerant cloud solutions for SMBs, SMEs, and Enterprises. I currently have the distinct pleasure of acting as a Technical Evangelist for Altaro Software, makers of Altaro VM Backup, servicing both Hyper-V and VMware based workloads. I provide technical marketing and pre-sales expertise. Additionally, Altaro's platform allows me to be heavily involved in the wider IT community, in a number of different ways, including, podcasts, webinars, blogging and public speaking. Prior to that I spent the last 16+ years providing technology solutions across several industry verticals including, education, fortune 500 manufacturing, healthcare and professional services working for MSPs and Internal IT Departments. During that time I’ve become and expert in VMware, Linux, and Network Security, but my big focus has always been in Virtualization, Cloud Services and the Microsoft Server Stack, with an emphasis on Hyper-V and more recently Azure and Container Services. Outside of my day job, I spend a great deal of time working with the IT community. I’m a published technical author, a professional speaker and blogger, and have a number of videos and podcasts that I’ve participated in on a number of different subjects and mediums. I have a passion for technology and always enjoy talking about tech with peers, customers and IT pros over a cup of coffee or a cold beer.
