I’m Back!


Well, after 3 years in the Microsoft Sales organization, I have decided to return to Microsoft Premier Field Engineering.  As of today, I am back in PFE as a SCOM engineer.  Smile

I had a great time in Technical Sales, and it was a fantastic learning experience for me.  After almost three years, I decided that I really missed working directly with customers on solutions, and working deeper with the products in System Center.  So the opportunity to return opened up recently and I jumped on it.

I will be returning to Premier DSE as a dedicated engineer primarily supporting System Center Operations Manager, along with connected System Center solutions.  I look forward to new challenging issues and solutions which should start driving more technical content here.

On a personal note, my wife is pregnant with twins, our first kiddos.  So while I am returning, I don’t know how much sleep I will be getting this year.  Wish me luck!
