Some updates…

Hello folks!  Life has been busy with some wonderful work and some big career changes.  As some of you may know, I moved on from my role at the Federal Reserve last summer.  While I loved the job, the people, and the organization, I wanted to try something new and different.

I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to work for one of the big three cloud providers in a security-focused professional services role supporting public sector customers.  The role was amazing, I learned a TON about a cloud platform I had never worked with, interacted with some of the smartest people I’ve ever met, and had the chance to help architect and implement some really awesome environments for some stellar customers.

Unfortunately the travel started taking a toll on my personal life and family time.  I made the tough decision to move on and find something that was a bit more regional and less travel.  I struck the lottery once more and in April started as a Cloud Solution Architect at Microsoft focusing on Infrastructure and Security in Azure.  I’ve once again been drinking from multiple firehoses and learning my second cloud platform.  It’s been a ball so far and I’m extremely excited learn and contribute to Microsoft’s mission to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more!

Expect a lot more activity on this blog as I share my experiences and my learnings with the wider tech community.  It’s going to be a fun ride!
