I am an IT pro with years of experience in the financial services industry. Currently, I work as a Solutions Architect for NBConsult. I have experience predominantly with Microsoft enterprise technologies, but like any sysadmin, I have a good understanding of multiple vendors and OEM technologies, not to mention cloud-based SAAS and particularly IT Admin services. Started my IT career in 1999, preparing thousands of IBM OS/2 machines for “Y2K” or the “Millennium Bug” by replacing them with Microsoft Window NT 4 Workstation. Today, I do Active Directory architectures, Exchange upgrades, migrations and hybrids, Intune device management and application management, PowerShell automation, SharePoint site administration, Microsoft Flows and PowerApps, even Azure DevOps and VS Code integration.
