My main professional focus is Microsoft SharePoint, specifically information architecture, training and technical project management. I am a Microsoft Office (particularly Outlook, Word, Excel and Visio) evangelist and help users improve their time management as well as personal productivity skills.

I believe in the power of the SharePoint community and contribute via my blog and Twitter and was one of the three organisers of SharePoint Saturday Stockholm in 2014.

In my free time, you can find me (re)watching Doctor Who episodes, reading epic fantasy books and knitting socks.
