Story
Tagline
Microsoft Outlook MVP. Author: Microsoft Office 2013 Pro Step By Step. Consultant/speaker/SharePoint integrator. Product Manager, Outlook Appins. Guitarist: Maiden Manitoba
Introduction

I'm famously known for having three main areas of passion and expertise - Microsoft consulting, developing unique solutions and bringing products to market and evangelizing technologies. Initially I was part of the first wave of SharePoint consultants and worked on over 20 enterprise projects for SPS 2001 through SharePoint 2013.  I'm also known as one of the top Outlook/Office developers in the world and have authored several dozen commercial add-ins (including for Colligo Networks, EPM Live and Outlook Appins). Furthermore I love promoting knowledge and marketing software as an author, speaker and visible expert in online and offline communities.

I am especially enthusiastic when building and releasing bringing commercial software products to market, and have amassed extensive experience including product planning, marketing, customer and technical support, branding, technical evangelism, community building and Shopify Ecommerce implementation. These skills were honed through my roles as the VP of Developer Evangelism for Add-in Express (the premier provider of developer tools for Microsoft Office) and as the Product Manager for Outlook Appins.  I can easily help lead a team to capture new markets in the Microsoft messaging and collaboration space, especially with my innovative ideas for new solutions built around Apps for Office, Mail Apps and LOB integration with Office 365 and desktop applications.

My writing experience includes authoring the Outlook chapters in Microsoft Office 2013 Professional Step By Step from Microsoft Press, as well as articles for MSDN, Microsoft Office Online and Windows IT Pro magazine. I have also been the technical editor for books on Outlook 2007 programming, SharePoint 2007, Access 2007 and Access 2010.  Finally, I am a passionate and engaging speaker who has spoken on SharePoint, Outlook and Office at conferences and code camps around the world (in Sweden, Las Vegas, Montreal, Winnipeg and Regina).
