Aboot Me eh?

You may have already guessed it, yup, I’m Canadian eh!

Currently I’m a creator of things at Rubrik Inc working for their wicked awesome Tech Marketing team.  Prior to that I spent 12 in the customer space and dabbled for a few in the partner space.

I’ve had the privilege of being awarded vExpert for the last 7 years and I’m also a co-leader in the Toronto VMUG.  It’s these two things which I am most proud of when I talk about my career with virtualization.  The community is something that I hold close and value very much so to be rewarded for sharing and giving back is one of the greatest feelings.

When I’m not working I love to spend time with my wife of 10 years, my son of 9 and daughter of 6.  I’m a huge hockey fan and an even bigger Montreal Canadiens fan.  I love to travel, although I don’t do much of it and I fit the stereotype of the quintessential IT nerd with my constant tinkering around with gadgets and devices.  I also enjoy DIY projects around the house, but unfortunately am not very good at some of them.

I hope to fill this space on the web with anything and everything IT that happens around me.  You will probably see the most posts centering around VMware and its ecosystem partners, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see a rant or two about a Habs loss every now and then.  Also, I welcome any feedback that anyone has to provide, positive and negative.

Happy reading 🙂 @mwpreston

  1. Nice blog, good to read about the VCP and the links to other pages!
    and some of us read the about page when we come around 😉 

  2. To know more about the author, people definitely  visit this page and your way of expressing about your self is simply super. Congrats..

  3. Your About Me page was the first page I went to! I’ve been solely a software engineer for the past 13 years and have moved to the virtual world as a result of government cutbacks (lost our contracts at the defense contractor I was working for). So far I love it. Thanks for blogging. I’ll make it required reading as I get up to speed on all of the VMWare technologies! And here’s to hockey FINALLY coming back this weekend! (I grew up in Dallas and have been a Stars fan since they moved there).
