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 and consulting with Windows 10 deployment. I’m also a member of the Windows Insider Programme, run Minecraft servers for the Geek and Sundry Twitch channel, I’m also a Community Manager for Jessica Marzipan.

In my 16 years I’ve been responsible for mass deployments of Windows XP, Windows 7 & Windows 10 along with some smaller deployments of Windows Vista and Windows 8/8.1. I’ve migrated from Windows Server 2000 to Windows Server 2003/2003 R2/2008/2008 R2/2012/2012 R2 & 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 still photography, making short films, and game development.
