For the past decade or so, I worked at the company I co-founded, and in late 2019 I joined Microsoft as an Azure Developer Audience Lead. It was fun, but I'm better at building something from scratch – and now I run our new company, North Advisors, that focuses on Azure and Power Platform consulting and support. During my spare time, I also co-produce the ravishing Ctrl+Alt+Azure podcast, with new episodes each week.
