My main professional focus is Microsoft SharePoint, specifically information architecture, training and technical project management. I am a Microsoft Office (particularly Outlook, Word, Excel and Visio) evangelist and help users improve their time management as well as personal productivity skills.

I believe in the power of the SharePoint community and contribute via my blog and Twitter and was one of the three organisers of SharePoint Saturday Stockholm in 2014.
