About Me

Currently, I’m a Principal Cloud Architect at SafeNet Consulting. SafeNet is a Microsoft Gold partner where we are a cloud service provider for Azure and provide services around cloud migrations, hybrid cloud, modern applications and AI.

Digital Thought Disruption was started as a way to help those who are seeking to digitally transform their environments or adopt new cloud operating models in their environment.

My career began with me as a hardware junkie like many beginning with EMC storage. From there I moved into the DR/Backup space, x86 compute, virtualization, hyperconvergd infrastructures, and finally into cloud computing. This full life cycle of technologies and my years in consulting have given me a wide breathe of knowledge of datacenter technologies, which I brought to multiple enterprise corporations.

I just hope these guidelines and thoughts help you on your digital journey. You can find my linkedin and twitter links below. Fee free to reach out if you have any questions.
