You can say Hi to me, I promise I don’t bite

I’m going to SharePoint Conference this year, my first time to SPC, and first time to Vegas, I can’t wait!

I wanted to let you know, if you’re going, please, feel free to say Hi! I may look scary, but I’m a big teddy bear. I’ll even give you a hug if you want.

I am 6 foot 6 inches tall, weighing in north of 250 (but losing it). I guess my size tends to scare, rather intimidate people at these types of events. At last year’s Boston SPTechCon, I connected with someone AFTER the event over LinkedIn, they said “I was behind you in line, but didn’t say hi”… Sadly, I didn’t recognize this person, otherwise I would’ve said Hi too. I’ve had other people at BASPUGs or other events say “wow, you’re really tall” once they finally meet me. I guess my profile pics are misleading.

In an attempt to alleviate that, here you’ll see how tall I am, and that I’m just a fun loving guy, don’t be scared (unless you try to take my food):

The Slalom team at SPTechCon, yeah, the tall one is me.

I'm on my knees with my little grammy standing next to me... Not sure where I got the height from.

I hope this helps, and if you see me at SPC or elsewhere, you say Hi! Til then, Happy SharePointing!
