I am a Microsoft Certified Master for Exchange Server 2010 and a Microsoft Exchange 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. Now in 2012, Microsoft is bringing back the MCSE as the Microsoft Certified Solutions Engineer.
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), Infrastructure Management Engineering, in 2009 for my continuing work in the technical community.
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 entering this program. This certification is being replaced with the Microsoft Certified Solutions Master (MCSM) in 2012.
