Have been working hands-on with preparation of development environment and execution processes of variety of Software solutions since very early of my career, working specifically from Windows Server NT 4.0 to latest in addition to VB6 to Visual Studio latest. Since then had always been keen on keeping up with the evolutionary process of the platform. Humble, like to share, and as a result, I had the pleasure to be nominated by Microsoft (Microsoft Most Valuable Professional) from 2002 to 2012 (I had 10 nominations in a row for Office Systems).

I Grabbed opportunities to professionally become specialized in Microsoft SharePoint Server, started with version 2003 and started accepting development and implementation of end-to-end portal solutions and Migrations using SharePoint.

Organized in terms of scheduling and work plan, used to plan meticulously project implementation process, and in spite of all if there are unplanned issues, he is always willing to handle. Vast experience in execution of tasks under pressure and besides having an innate problem-solving ability, hands-on incident management experience.

When forced indoors, I follow a number of sci-fi and fantasy genre movies and television shows, I am an aspiring chef, and I spend a large amount of my free time exploring the latest technology advancements in the front-end web development world.
