have been with Microsoft in several technical leadership roles over the last 25 years and has experience architecting and implementing enterprise class software, services and infrastructure. I am now responsible for enhancing and enabling the ecosystem for container networking. In this position I am responsible for building relationships with partners and vendors in that space and help them implement their solution to support Windows Containers. While I started out as a High Tension Electrical Engineer in the mid-80s I got into Computers in the early PC days of the ZX80 and Intel 808x family based computers. Building hardware solutions for Powerplant control systems and computer networks in the pre-internet days. My specialties include Hosting, Cloud Computing, Office 365, Microsoft Enterprise Architecture, Windows Embedded, Development in ASP.NET, C#, Windows Phone 7 Silverlight, Cellular Networks, (Are you still scanning?) Windows Phone 8, Windows Mobile, Microsoft Surface, Windows Phone 8, Windows Phone 8.1, Silverlight on Windows Phone 8.x and Windows 8, Windows 10, UWP, services and hosting. When I'm not at work trying to change the World, I really enjoy horseback riding with my wife and 2 kids, taking RV trips to enjoy the postcard we live in, and when I can sneak away from the family you might be surprised to learn ... I am a Blacksmith.
