About

a-real-profile-picHi, I’m Mike Galvin. I’ve been working in the IT industry for 16 years. I specialise in System Administration and Operating System deployment. Over the years I’ve become very familiar with Microsoft Deployment Toolkit, Windows Deployment Services, Hyper-V, Active Directory, Group Policy, and Exchange.

Currently I’m focused on PowerShell, Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016 deployment. I’m also a member of the Windows Insider Program, run Minecraft servers for the Geek and Sundry Twitch channel, and I’m a Community Manager for Jessica Marzipan.

In my 16 years I’ve been responsible for large deployments of Windows XP, Windows 7 and Windows 10 along with some smaller deployments of Windows Vista and Windows 8/8.1. I’ve migrated from Windows Server 2000 through to Windows Server 2016.

Along side my professional career in IT, I’m also a life long creator which has informed my interest in technology as much as technology has enabled me to be creative. I’ve dabbled in music creation starting with the Commodore Amiga and .mod files, but I found the most personal fulfilment with photography, making short films, and game development.
