Hi, my name is John.

I currently work with Microsoft as an Associate Consultant within our Business Productivity practice of Microsoft Consulting Services. Prior to Microsoft, I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin's McCombs School of Business, where I obtained a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree concentrated in Management Information Systems with an Accounting minor. Beyond the work world, I have a variety of interests including traveling, scuba diving, water sports, emerging technologies, and software development, to name a few.

IT experience:

I've been working in various IT related roles since I was 16 years old. Starting out in consumer and small business technology services as a Technical Specialist, I then moved into enterprise IT support as a Student Technician for the McCombs School of Business at UT, working with their full-time support team while in school.

Outside of the US, I gained additional experience on a global scale while I worked abroad in an international internship as a Business Development and Project Management Intern in Barcelona, Spain for a firm developing software to facilitate telecommuting and conduct workplace productivity analytics.

I found my interest in consulting during the summers of 2015 and 2016 when I worked with Deloitte Consulting as a Business Technology Analyst (Summer Scholar) in their Systems Integration service line within their State Government practice. Working on large scale projects over those two summers peaked my interest in helping clients leverage technology solutions to enable and empower their businesses.

I began full-time with Microsoft in July 2017 within their consulting services practice as a part of the Microsoft Academy of College Hires (MACH) program where I have since worked to design and implement technology solutions for enterprise customers across our cloud offerings on the Office 365, Azure, and SharePoint platforms.

Outside work:

Outside of work, I love water sports, technology, and travelling. When it comes to water sports, I love to waterski, wakeboard, paddleboard, kayak, and scuba dive. As clear by my career choice, I love technology and am always interested in new products and emerging fields. I greatly enjoy travelling and have had the fortunate opportunity to travel through over 23 countries across 5 different continents. Additionally, I am an avid homebrewer, disc golfer, and aficionado of prairie-style and modern architecture.
