About Richard Smith

I have worked in the IT industry for nearly 20 years, and I enjoy working within a cross-sector environment at Microsoft. I am a Consultant in Microsoft Consulting Services (MCS) delivering engagements around Windows Vista desktop design and deployment, but have previously delivered consultancy services in Windows Server 2003, Active Directory design, Exchange 2000/2003 and SharePoint Portal Server. 

For the past 18 months, I have been the technical lead for the UK element of the Vista TAP-RD program, deploying Windows Vista, Office 2003 and 2007 Office System with enterprise customers who are early adopters of both the operating system and the deployment tools.


In my spare time (not that I have much of that :-) I enjoy writing and producing musical theatre, digital photography, music and video production and anything to do with using technology for creative means.
