• I’ve shared my explorations of xDB + Machine Learning at Symposium 2016, Sugcon.EU 2017, on Mark Stiles’ Catching Exceptions (twice) and Derek Dysart’s podcast

  1. It is great to see your application here as you truly deserve this award. You are a big part of the Toronto Sitecore Community and have been since the very first Sitecore User Group. Not only do you arrange the groups and keep everyone organized but on an individual basis you meet with us to answer questions, provide guidance and motivation to succeed in all our journeys. During the start of TechGuilds, you offered much guidance and met with us a minimum once a quarter to help us build a successful practice. These efforts were much appreciated and are but one example of how you are a core community friend.
