In 2011 I started Canterbury Business Solutions with two business partners. We build solutions on the Microsoft stack, usually around SharePoint, .NET and SQL Server. Our business is built on experience and technical expertise built up over nearly 25 years in the IT industry.
In March 2015 we renamed our business to Stratos Technology Partners to signify the growth of our business outside of our home town and the strength of the partnerships we have with our clients.
I am an active member of the IT community running the Christchurch Microsoft Infrastructure User Group and as President of MS Communities, the funding organisation for Microsoft User Groups across New Zealand. I also take a leading role organising Code Camp (funded by MS Communities), a free community driven IT conference run annually in Auckland and Christchurch.
On the 1st January 2017 I was received my first Microsoft MVP award for Office Server and Services. Thank you to everyone who helped make this happen for me!
