Born and raised in the NY Metropolitan area where I've worked as technology specialist for over 25 years. Prior to joining Microsoft I was a UC specialist at a mid-size accounting firm where I gained experience implementing Exchange UM and Lync 2010 Enterprise voice to replace existing PBX systems. I joined Microsoft in 2012 as Premier Field Engineer working to assist our customers deploy Lync 2013. I am currently working as a Sr. Supportability PM and validation lead for Skype for Business preview features. I have a passion for fine tuning technology and greatly enjoy collaborating with others to learn and share knowledge to enhance our customers' experience with Skype for Business collaboration features.
