About Me

Hi!  I’m Ned and this is my bio.  I’m an IT professional with almost 20 years of experience in the field.  I’ve been a helpdesk operator, systems administrator, cloud architect, and product manager.  In my newest  incarnation I am the Founder of Ned in the Cloud LLC.  As a one-man-tech-juggernaut, I develop courses for Pluralsight, run a podcast for Packet Pushers, run a podcast for myself,  and create original content for technology vendors.

I’ve been a Microsoft MVP since 2017 and I hold a bunch of industry certifications that have no bearing on anything beyond my exceptional ability to take exams and pass them.

In my career I’ve focused on three key pillars:

  • Make yourself uncomfortable
  • Plan to fail
  • Be nice

Want to know more?  It’s the first post I ever wrote on this site.

On a personal note, I am father to three amazing children and married to a totally awesome lady.  In my spare time I enjoy listening to music, running, and drinking delicious fermented liquids.

You can connect with me on Twitter or LinkedIn, and I hope that you do!
