Meet your host, Stephen Rose

Stephen starts his day with a homemade cold brew and a dash of sweet crème. He is passionate about all things Chicago, NHL Hockey, and may be the last living member of the Columbia House Record and Tape club. Stephen is staying balanced during these times by playing bass (which he is still learning) and driving his convertible in the sun with the music turned way up. Once this quarantine is over, he is looking forward to joining his friends over a bacon filled breakfast.

Stephen grew up in Chicago and spent 15 years as a IT Pro consultant and Microsoft MVP before moving to Seattle in 2009 when he joined Microsoft. Since that time Stephen has led IT Pro product marketing for a wide variety of products at Microsoft including Windows, Surface, Office 365 and OneDrive. He now is part of the IT Pro Security, Management and Governance marketing team for Microsoft Teams. Stephen holds over 20 technical certifications and been certified since Windows NT 4.0 and (sadly) still remembers what an IRQ is. Stephen was an MVP for 3 years in the area of Networking/Windows and still is a community guy at heart.
