Hi, I’m John. I work with my head in the clouds. While that may have once frustrated an elementary school teacher or two, it’s an advantage in today’s business world. Once the stuff of dreams, “the cloud” is now a primary source of entertainment, information and connection for people and businesses across the globe. Of course, I’m talking about the Microsoft Azure Cloud.
I’m a 20-year Microsoft veteran and a streaming media expert. When I’m not geeking out on building exciting new platforms to stream and encode live and on-demand video, you’ll find me closer to the Earth. I’m a skier, a sea-kayaker, a mountain biker and a world traveler-explorer. I’m a father, husband, artist, musician and a technologist who can’t keep his hands off code.
