Renewed as an MVP!

I’m in New Zealand this week speaking at the first New Zealand SharePoint Community Conference.   Since they are on the other side of the international date line it means that yesterday was July 1st here, but I had to wait until July 2nd (July 1st in North America) to find out whether I was re-awarded or not.  I was on pins and needles all day long waiting for my renewal email.  I had to keep telling myself it wasn’t really July 1st yet.

Anyway, the good news is that I have received an MVP award again this year for SharePoint server.  I am even more EXCITED this year than I was my first year because I now know just how great this program is.  Thanks to all those who have asked me questions this past year and those who came to listen to me at conferences.  Without you I wouldn’t have this opportunity.  I hope to continue to live up to the honor that has been bestowed on me again this year.

I am a SharePoint 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 was a contributing author to the Developer's Guide to Windows SharePoint Services v3 Platform and the SharePoint Server 2007 Deployment Best Practices. My most recent book, the MCTS Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 Configuration Study Guide: Exam 70-631, was released in October, 2009.
