Hi, I’m John. I work with my head in the clouds.

That’s an advantage in today’s business world. Once the stuff of dreams, “the cloud” is now a primary source of entertainment, information and connection for people and businesses across the globe. Of course, I’m talking about the Microsoft Azure Cloud.

I’m a 20-year Microsoft veteran and a streaming media expert. When I’m not geeking out on building exciting new platforms to stream and encode live and on-demand video, you’ll find me closer to the Earth. I’m a skier, a sea-kayaker, a mountain biker and a world traveler.
I’m a father, husband, artist, musician and a technologist.
