My group is responsible for core end-user features around team and channel management, IT admin experiences, growth initiatives, and customer and community programs. Previously, I drove online meetings and client experiences in Skype for Business and led product teams in Windows and Azure. Before joining Microsoft, I founded and sold an enterprise content management startup and worked as an IT architect.
