I’m a long time IT Systems Engineer who has worked across many practices and disciplines in my career, with a primary focus on Microsoft-based Infrastructure solutions or Mixed-environments. At this point, I’ve got 20+ years of experience managing Microsoft-based corporate infrastructure, ranging from 50 user shops all the way up to 1,000+ user organizations.

Currently, I’m a Systems Engineer at DevScope where my work ranges the full Microsoft stack, from On-Prem Services (e.g., Active Directory, Exchange, SharePoint, System Center Virtual Machine Manager) up to Azure (e.g., Virtual Machines, Cloud Services), and solid exposure and knowledge around almost all of the core underlying technologies that support and power the core Microsoft Infrastructure stack (e.g., DNS, DHCP, SQL Server, PowerShell, and so on).

At present, one of my expertise areas is SQL Server benchmark, diagnostics and performance tuning, either OnPrem or on Azure. Also I’m researching on Microservices, Container and Docker with a focus on Azure deployments.

From the infrastructures perspective, I also knowledged on technology that supports it (e.g., Cisco Systems or HP switching, routers, firewalls and Wireless AP's).

Previously I've worked 11 years as an IT Trainer (the last ones as an Microsoft Certified Trainer).
