Hi, I'm Ben Winzenz, and I am currently a Support Engineer on the Exchange Admin Support team. I joined Microsoft in October of 2006, and before that I was an Exchange MVP for the previous 3 years. I have been working in the IT industry since 1998, and with Exchange since 1999, when I first cut my teeth on Exchange 5.5. Previously, I worked for a startup company in Austin as a Customer Support and Implementation Engineer, and then later as a Systems Engineer overseeing a large Development/QA Lab. Prior to that, I worked as a Network Administrator in Indianapolis, and as a Systems Administrator in Ann Arbor, MI. I now call Dallas my home, and hope to be here for some time.
I grew up in Manchester, Michigan (a small "village" of about 2000) and went on to college at Brigham Young University, where I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Pre-Physical Therapy. While it is true that I am not working in the field that I studied in college, I guarantee that I am a certified geek when it comes to technology, and my wife will wholeheartedly agree. I am married to a wonderful wife, Julianne, and we currently have 4 children together. In my free time, when I'm not working on my computer, I enjoy playing Xbox (I'll take you on in any racing game), playing with our kids, and enjoy watching and participating in most sports, though Basketball is definitely my favorite.
