About Me

I am a SharePoint MCM and MVP who has specialized in Microsoft products since the mid-1990s. As a “Jack of all Trades” I have developed expertise as a network administrator, developer, and DBA. I works as a consultant/trainer where my breadth of knowledge makes me ideally suited to combine Administrative, Development, and SharePoint Designer topics.  My 20+ years of experience and broad background make me a much sought after resource for SharePoint questions that cross traditional boundaries. I reside in Cleveland, Ohio USA with my wife Sharon.

I’ve contributed to or authored a number of books including:

  • Developer’s Guide to Windows SharePoint Services v3 Platform
  • SharePoint Server 2007 Deployment Best Practices
  • MCTS WSS 3.0 Configuration Study Guide: Exam 70-631
  • Pro SharePoint 2010 Development for Office 365

  1. Dear stork,
    I read number of your blogs and technical reply on SharePoint. We are working for a client on SP 2013 but none of us clear knowledge on few things. I am writing this email just to know your reply on a question. Actually no body among us have proper knowledge on this topic. Kindly guide us.

    I know how SharePoint hosted apps are working and how provider hosted apps are working. I/ we am able to create both types of apps. We have office 365 E subscription and Azure subscription, so we have scope to create apps with all possibilities. But in real life scenario when should we use i.e. for what purpose we should create:

    A. Provider hosted apps?

    B. SharePoint hosted apps?

    Kindly reply.

    Will you be able to send your skype id (since you are in USA)? so that I can talk over skype on this subject only, for no other subject.

  2. SharePoint 2013 Cross site publishing:

    We have set up a Catalog site and publishing site.
    We have setup Term Navigation and it work correctly while on our internal site. But when we access it externally the catalog item page redirect to the catalog site (Catalog List Items). We have set up AAM for our external site, but have not been successful.

    In addition we are also having issue with external user using our App Store. Not sure if both items are related.

    We would be interested in some consulting.
