Musings from Beyond the Corner Office

Beyond the Corner Office is a home for the musings of Jonathan Gardner and friends to talk about their work and express random thoughts.

Jonathan in his own words


I am a Senior Program Manager at Microsoft where he works on the Azure CAT GSI team. Before joining Microsoft, I spent 12 years working for Microsoft partners as a consultant working on a wide range of technologies from server virtualization to database administration. After seeing a significant shift to cloud based services, I new it was time to join the best player in the space. Now I am working with our largest customers and partners to help shape the future of the cloud.

The goal of this blog is to chronicle the things I have learned along the way and share them with you. Please know that any views expressed on this blog are mine and mine alone. I would never presume to speak on behalf of the views of Microsoft as a whole. We would really love to engage with you. I have included a comments section in each post, included a contact form, or you can always find me on Twitter.

Outside of work, I am an avid SCUBA diver, foodie, craft beer enthusiast, photographer, and traveler. I live with my wife and two puppies in South Louisiana where I grew up. You can check out my photography on Instagram or on my portfolio page where you can purchase prints or downloads. You will often see my work used throughout the site as well.
