ExpertiseI cut my teeth on MS-DOS and Win3.1 and have climbed the Microsoft tree ever since (AD, SQL, IIS, System Center, SharePoint, Lync, etc). Beginning with ESX 2.5, I jumped into the virtualization realm and have tracked with VMware to the present (vSphere 6, DRS, HA). On the networking and storage ends, I work on Cisco, Pure, XtremIO, and 3PAR gear, with past experience in NetApp as well.
BiographyI'm a strategist and problem solver in all of life, always figuring out how to improve things. In a lot of ways, that makes me an idealist, because I believe things can always be better. I enjoy writing both privately and publicly (blog), cultivating my yard and gardens, and spending rich time with my family (son on the way in May!). My wife and I also have fun mentoring dating & engaged couples at our church. If it has depth and purpose, we're there.
