About me

How I got to where I am currently is pure luck, with a bit of direction from a handful of people that I need to thank for giving me the opportunity to feel my way through this thing we call IT.

  • 1993-1995

    My Humble Start

    I can haz COBOL. Yip, it's where it all began. My dad thought it would be a good idea. I had already worked on and owned the BEST device of all time, the mighty ZX Spectrum 48k!

  • 1995-2000

    My Techie Days

    COBOL was very short lived. Got into Computer wholesale. Got into gaming and that's where my love affair with hardware started. This led to me running an import company and eventually getting into infrastructure management.

  • 2000-2005

    What is this DM stuff?

    Got sent on a "Document Management" training course. Enter Zylab, Livelink, FileNet, FYI, Documentum, SharePoint Portal Server. My infrastructure and systems management roots were being expanded into AD, Exchange, Security, virtualisation, linux, blah, blah, blah. AND then ECM stuff.

  • 2005-2010

    Many products and Many things

    Fell in love with the Microsoft stack. Still spending time on AD, Exchange, SCOM, etc, in the background, but focusing on what was then MOSS. Livelink started falling along the wayside, like an unwatered plant. Oh the joy and the Pain.

  • 2010-2016

    The real fun stuff!

    Community, Information Worker, SharePoint Saturday, MVP, International Speaker, and the list goes on. This is really where I began honing my skills and settling into what I found my passion for; Evangelizing about the technologies I work with daily. Exciting times ahead.
