Since 2009 Stephen has led IT pro product marketing for a wide variety of products at Microsoft including Microsoft 365, Windows, Surface, Office and OneDrive. He now leads IT Pro Security, Management and Privacy for Microsoft Teams and is the host of the show Inside Microsoft Teams.
Stephen holds over 20 technical certifications and been certified since Windows NT 4.0 and (sadly) still remembers what an IRQ is. It is also possible that Stephen may be the last living member of the Columbia House Record and Tape club.https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/
