I have been in the IT industry since I completed my university degree in computing science in 1995. Although I started my career as a C/C++ developer, I then moved in the IT infrastructure space through different roles such as System Administrator, Systems Engineer and Network Engineer for international companies. In February 2008, I partnered with Tom Ward to develop Vigilant.IT, in which I continued to improve my skill set in the engineering and architecture space. Today, my primary focus is the Microsoft System Center suite, Windows Azure Pack, Microsoft Cloud OS for hosters and large enterprise and of course, Microsoft Azure, specifically around Recovery services, IaaS and networking. I also am a Microsoft Certified Azure Solutions Architect (MCSD) and a Microsoft Azure MVP.
