Back in 1996, as I watched a movie about Italy at the Drexel Theatre in Columbus OH, I decided that one day I’d live in Europe.
I didn’t need to move immediately. I just put it on my long-term agenda and figured things would eventually work themselves out with gentle guidance.
Part of that gentle guidance was to casually look for jobs in the UK and Europe 😅 I noticed that a lot of the coolest jobs were offered by the Microsoft-centric recruitment company, Nigel Frank.
I ended up working for another company that had jobs in both America and the EU, but still follow Nigel Frank with the cool jobs to see what skills I need to stay relevant.
Considering this familiarity with Nigel Frank, I was incredibly blown away that they listed me as one of the Top 25 Microsoft MVPs you should be following in 2019. What an honor! I am included with a number of my highly regarded colleagues including Jaap Brasser, Sarah Dutkiewicz, Thomas Poppelgaard, and Paul Andrew.
In 2019, my primary focus will remain on dbatools, though I’m also throwing in a bit of effort into kbupdate and SPReplicator. I’m also continuing to work on dbatools in a month of lunches with Rob Sewell for Manning Publications. Looks like the MEAP will be coming out soon! Stay tuned for more info.
