I’ve always had two passions throughout my IT career, Messaging, and Security. I tend to change my focus from one to the other every few years. For the past couple years as a Premier Field Engineer, I was fortunate enough to be able to leverage both of my passions, however Messaging was my primary focus. Yesterday was my first day back to work in 2016. It was also the start of a new role for me at Microsoft. I am now a Cybersecurity Architect, and with that my primary focus changes to Security once again. This means you’ll probably see a little more Security focused content on my blog from now on. Even though Security is now my main focus, my Messaging skills are in demand with my new role, so I’ll still get to leverage both my passions. I’m looking forward to helping customers be more secure in 2016!
