TECHNOLOGY THOUGHT LEADER & EXPERT
Technology is only as good as the passion we have to keep up with it. -Melanie Gass
Welcome! I love technology. Every day, I wake up motivated by the thought of living in a time where we witness life-changing innovation. Knowing that I have the opportunity to help others, like you, embrace it and transform their lives provides fulfillment beyond words.
Over the last 15 years, I've worked with millions around the globe as a technology consulting firm owner, author, speaker, syndicated podcast host, and corporate employee. I've empowered corporations of all sizes to transform their workday, and am thankful to have assisted some of the most powerful people in the world.
Whether it's offering an answer to a simple question, or finding a solution to a multi-faceted problem, I look forward to learning your challenges and guiding you through your technology journey.
My technology love story started in 1998 when the company I worked for thought it would be nice for me to learn everything possible on Microsoft products. Thanks to their gift and a journey through certifications, I found my calling to help others achieve more in their own journey and embrace the technology revolution.
Over the years, I owned a technology firm where I trained millions of people, wrote over 15 books sold at major online retailers, and helped over 500,000 each week worldwide learn the latest updates on Microsoft products through a syndicated radio show. I traveled the globe speaking to audiences of all sizes and worked with some of the world’s most powerful business leaders. I spent over 10 years building a business and personal brand. But it wasn't enough. The calling I felt required me to help millions more at a faster pace. I dissolved the firm, left life in the public eye, and joined a tech giant.
The past six years have brought incredible fulfillment at Microsoft with multiple awards, and the journey led me to my current focus of waking up every day thinking about how to help technical field sellers globally empower developers in their modernization projects using Developer Tools.
As a passion project I help others through my latest book, Transforming the Remote Work Experience available at Amazon.com and retailers globally.
Personally, I enjoy golf, sailing, traveling to new places, appreciating historic locations and embracing new adventures. In the words of the Roman poet Horace, Carpe diem!
