I am a Technical Stategy Advisor in Microsoft’s Global ISV team with 19 years of experience in the software technology business. I Manage a Portfolio of Global ISVs totalling over 35 billion in revenue. I work to align Microsoft’s emerging technology innovations with ISV product development strategies to insure ISV revenue growth, cost reduction and increased shareholder value. You can find my work experience on LinkedIn. I am a published author at MSDN Magazine, APress and Microsoft Press.
I often find my self answering the question “what does a strategy advisor do?” by saying that I am a virtual CTO for my partners. And that seems to sum it up “the accidental CTO”.
I am married to my wonderful wife Susan and our five children: Johnathan (21), Jamal (16), Bakari (13), Zack (12) and AnnaGail 10). They keep me extremely busy when I am home.
