Liam Cleary began his career as a trainer of all things computer related. He quickly realized that programming, breaking into and hacking computers was a lot more fun. He spent the next few years working within core infrastructure and security services until he found SharePoint. He now works as a Solution Architect for Protiviti in Virginia. His core focus is to ensure that SharePoint does exactly what it is meant to do and insure that it is secure and protected correctly. Cleary is also an eight time SharePoint MVP focusing on architecture but also crosses the boundary into development. He can often be found at user groups or conferences speaking, offering advice, spending time in the community, teaching his kids how to code using Raspberry PI Programming, hacking the planet or building Lego robots.
