Senior Messaging and Collaboration professional.

20 years enterprise experience primarily focused on Microsoft Email & Collab platforms. Most-recently designing and implementing our migration from Exchange 2010 on-prem to hybrid Exchange 2016/Office365.

My Email Review/Archiving/SOX-compliance experience includes Symantec Enterprise Vault (along with a series of products devolved into the current HP Autonomy & Clearwell offerings).

Along the way I've developed pretty solid monitoring skills leveraging SCOM, NetIQand SolarWinds, I also pride myself on being a skilled Powershell/VBS/VB developer and admin-scripter.

I'm currently a Senior System Administrator with Toro, where I'm responsible for architecture design and L3 ops admin of our 7,500 mailbox messaging & Lync collaboration infrastructure ($2.1B annual revenue, Fortune 1000).

Prior positions with Hexaware/Unisys (Technical Architect, L3 architecture & admin of 32,000 mailbox Exchange 2007/2010 infra, $3.4B annual revenue, Fortune 1000), and Merrill Corporation (11,000 mailboxes,$800M annual revenue, privately-held), preceded by six years architecture and ops work with C.H. Robinson Worldwide (10,500 mailboxes, Fortune 500, $10B annual revenue), and another by six years ops administration at RBC Dain Rauscher (7500 seats, a 'Top 15 Investment Bank').

Lover of musical stringed-things:Guitar to Ukulele. Former drummer.

Allons-y woodsy:Compulsive enjoyer of our cabin in the Superior National Forest, on Lake Superior's North Shore (see background image above).

'Stuff':I'm a fan of SF, tiki-stuff, mixology and board-games. I can also frequently be found getting my butt kicked training at Krav Maga class…. :^D
