Currently a Senior Technical Program Manager at Amazon working in Identity, I have over 25 years in the IT Industry, 22 of which I spent at Microsoft in various roles, the last being Senior Program Manager Azure Identity. I’ve I worked on the following feature areas such as authentication( Windows Hello for Business), PKI, and cryptography. Additional security related areas where I collaborate include Modern Authentication, TLS, and FIPS validation.
