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

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.
