Who am I? Am I a father, podcaster, employee, manager, speaker, lover of humanity, or IT geek? Yes, yes I am.
I do federal IT and interact in a bunch of networks that help link people, whether government to government, government to industry, or Microsoft technologies that I love to share. On top of that, I want to encourage youth and younger professionals in their careers and help them make connections that will benefit them wherever they end up.

This is the world we have. Let's have some fun and do some cool stuff.

This week's guest is Bethany Aquilina Brez. She is the Managing Director of Strategic Execution at the U.S. International Development Finance Corporation. Listen as she talks about how a trip to Russia when she was a Freshman in High School set her on the trajectory she is following in regard to the challenges and opportunities around the world.

Bethany and I met working at the Millennium Challenge Corporation together and having the opportunity to try and solve some great challenges in how we run the business. When I first met her, I was struck by her focus on solving problems and how she interacted and collaborated with whoever was needed to get the job done.

This week's guest is Mary O'Connor. She is a Program Management Office Coordinator at Agile Defense and a 2021 graduate of the ACT-IAC Associates leadership development program. Listen as she talks about growing up locally in the DC area, staying here for school, and her journey to a career in the technology area.

I was the government chair for the Associates 2021, which is how Mary and I met. A fascinating fact that didn't make it into the interview is that she won a full scholarship from McDonalds as an employee.

This week's guest is David Patrick. He a Subject Matter Expert at DSA working in the SharePoint space. He is an adjunct professor and volunteer with several amazing organizations and is well known as a speaker and trainer in the Microsoft community. Listen as he talks about being a local to the DC area and the early exposure to technology at camps that was his inspiration for getting into an IT career.

David and I met a few years ago when we were speaking at the local Microsoft Ignite the Tour, both of us speaking that day with our daughters on our passion for technology and its impacts on the future generations. Since then, he has been a great encouragement to my daughter, getting her involved with TechGirlz, and we continue to bump into each other while speaking at user group events.
