Chris started his career at Microsoft in 1994 as a contract customer service representative during the Windows 95 launch. Prior to applying with the company, he did not know who Bill Gates was or what Microsoft did. Why? He was a hard core Apple user and had been since the late '70s.

Chris left the company as a contractor in 1996 and returned one year later as a full-time employee supporting networking technologies for Windows NT 4.0 Server and client connectivity. Shortly afterward, he started supporting the Small Business Server product. In 2002, Chris took on the role of IT Evangelist and speaking to IT Professionals about the great products and technologies Microsoft had to offer. Since then he has embraced live events and social media (Twitter - @chrisavis, blog – http://chrisavis.com) as a way to get the word out to IT professionals in the US and around the world. When not geeking out on technology, Chris enjoys camping, hiking and traveling. He is also an avid Guitar Hero player and karaoke singer.
