With over 22 years of ICT experience, starting in Malta & across Europe, I am currently the Microsoft Intelligent Cloud WW Cloud Solutions Architect for telcos. My focus is not only on helping partners realize their cloud visions with tangible solution architectures and implementation but also working at a strategic level to help them transform their business and cloud enable their products or services. My curious passion for technology & business innovation has enabled me to assist Large Enterprise Customers, as well as Small Start ups, transform business ideas into actual realization using cloud technologies, on-premises infrastructure or both! My dedication to professionalism has also been recognized when I received one of the British Computer Society's highest awards, the Sidney Michaelson Award in January 2000. Upon joining Microsoft, I immediately used my strong network in the regional ICT industry to evangelize & market not only the developer space, but also the IT management and operations space about Microsoft’s products. My end-to-end hands-on approach enables me to engage many audiences in the ICT industry, providing technical marketing in the academic, partner, customer and community space. My strong technical background is complimented with a very pragmatic business acumen that has lead me to become a trusted adviser with key Enterprise & government customers as well as small and mid-sized partners and ISV’s. My unique ability to pull things together, clearly articulate them to the business decision makers and then drill down to implementation details makes me a strong project manger for complex intiatives. My willingness to share knowledge and constant striving for optimization make me a strategic asset on any team as well as a great team player. I particularly enjoy presenting to large audiences & delivering both Technical & Business workshops; but most especially I enjoy the entrepreneurial side of working at Microsoft.
