Microsoft MVP – Fifth Year!

This morning I received my fifth MVP Award notice and felt elated that Microsoft would award me once again. Getting the award this year seems to mean just a little more than usual. For one, I published my first book Practical PowerShell – Exchange Server 2016 with fellow Office Server and Services MVP Dave Stork. That was cool…. and very time-consuming. On my blog I still managed to post over 30 posts while working on this book. In my spare time I also ran a user group on Microsoft products like Exchange, Office 365, SharePoint and more and presented at each meeting. To say the least this keeps me busy all while working a full-time job on the side.

My experience over the past 4 years as an MVP has been an interesting ride. Interaction with the Exchange Product Group and a select group of Exchange MVPs has shaped my need to continue on this path of community involvement. Finally I would like to thank Microsoft for recognizing me with this award. 2017 looks to be another big year and there will be some interesting announcements on this blog after the summer…. so stay tuned for more!

Here’s to another five years!
