About Mike

I'm the founder of CloudSkills.io, a technical advisor, author, and mentor for people ramping up on cloud-based technologies.

I got a break in the late 1990's when someone took a chance on me. Although I had no experience, I landed my first job in the tech industry. I promised myself I wouldn’t waste the opportunity.

Fast forward to today, and I've worked for tech giants like Microsoft and Amazon, and have founded two consulting companies of my own. I’ve been paid to speak on stage at events around the world. I’ve published four books and have created over twenty-five online courses that have reached more than 300,000 learners on platforms including Pluralsight, and LinkedIn Learning.

I know from experience that anyone can create a successful career in the tech industry, and my goal is to shorten that learning curve for others. I'm proud to be recognized as a Microsoft Azure MVP, and I am contributor for several online publications including Medium and TechTarget.

Every week I share technical tips and career advice for people working in the cloud computing industry though my podcast and email newsletter.
