During normal working hours, I am the Chief Technology Officer for Bitstream Foundry LLC, a SharePoint solutions, services, and consulting company headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio. My professional development background goes back to the COM and pre-COM days - as well as SharePoint (since 2004) - and I've spent a tremendous amount of time both in the plumbing (as an IT Pro) and APIs (as a developer) associated with SharePoint and SharePoint Online. In addition, Microsoft awarded me an MVP (most valuable professional) in 2016 for the Office Development and the Office Servers and Services categories.

In addition to being my business endeavor, Bitstream Foundry is also a way for me to organize my professional development activities, speaking engagements, side projects, and other efforts aimed at sharing what I know (and solutions I've put together) with the SharePoint and Office 365 communities. I've co-authored two books on SharePoint, written numerous whitepapers, maintain a SharePoint-centric blog, and regularly travel around the country speaking and presenting at conferences and events.

Besides Microsoft technologies, I like to experiment and try things that catch my eye. I'm an avid (PC) gamer and gadget wonk (see http://gadget.cafe), I consume tremendous amounts of music and put together DJ mixes every year (through http://www.bunkertuneage.com), I run a basement datacenter, and I've been working with HoloLens AR and Oculus Rift VR.

To round things out a bit: in the past, I've been both a polymer chemist, a firefighter/EMT/hazmat technician, and a technology evangelist for a software company. I'm also currently a board member and the CTO for a mental health awareness and education non-profit organization (http://www.schizophreniaoralhistories.com). And last but certainly not least: I have a pair of awesome twins (Brendan and Sabrina) and am married to a wonderful woman (Tracy).

My life tends to be neither dull nor slow.
