I'm a consultant, 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 online courses that have reached more than 300,000 learners on platforms including Pluralsight, Lynda.com, and LinkedIn Learning.
I've learned firsthand that anyone can create a successful career in the tech industry. My goal is to shorten that learning curve for others and I am a big believer in contributing to the technical community. I'm proud to be recognized as a Microsoft Azure MVP, and I am contributor for several online publications including Forbes, Medium, and TechTarget.
