I am a Microsoft Certified Solutions Master for Exchange Server and an Office Servers and Services - Exchange Server MVP.
I began my Microsoft certification series in 1998, achieving my first Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) for Windows NT 4.0 in 1999, and continue recertification to this day. I do this both for professional and personal reasons, since these credentials demonstrate a thorough understanding of the technologies that I work with every day.
In 2008 Microsoft's new generation certifications replaced the Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) credential with the new Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP) credential. The broad Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) certification was replaced by the more specific Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) certification. In 2012 Microsoft brought back the MCSE as the Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert.
In 2007 I became certified as a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), an independent information security certification governed by the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium (commonly known as (ISC)²). With this certification I perform security audits and reviews for organizations.
I was awarded as Microsoft MVP (Most Valuable Professional) in 2009 for my continuing work in the technical community and have been awarded every year since. In October 2015 my expertise changed from Exchange Server MVP to Office Servers and Services MVP to reflect my experience with Office 365 and other Microsoft cloud solutions.
In October 2011 I became a Microsoft Certified Master for Exchange. This is grueling three week program held at the Microsoft campus in Redmond, WA. It was one of the most challenging and gratifying experiences of my career. If you are an Exchange expert and really want to go to the next level, I encourage you to contact me about this program. This certification was replaced with the Microsoft Certified Solutions Master (MCSM) in 2012, before it was unfortunately discontinued January 1, 2014.
