Michael Murphy
SkillSoft Trainer

Having started out building spreadsheet applications for mid-range mainframes (predecessor of the IBM AS400) followed by 5 years deploying and supporting MS DOS based labs, in 1992, Michael Murphy, riding the wave of Internet speculation, brokered the relationship between the Internet Cafe and Prufrock's Bookstore and Cafe, Scranton Pa, to make Prufrock's the 6th cyber cafe in North America.

In 1995 he transitioned to corporate consulting and training in Manhattan where he served the evolving computing needs of clients in Federal, State and Local governments, the Fortune 500 and Wall Street.

In 2003 he joined Microsoft's TechNet Team as an IT Pro Evangelist; launching Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, SQL 2005, Exchange 2007 and many other milestone versions of Microsoft's premier operating systems and Back Office Infrastructure Products.

Weary of travel (over a half million combined highway and sky miles in 6 years), Michael left the Microsoft Corporation in 2009 to launch The Dancing Goat Farm, a Model Organic Lifestyle farm in NEPA, where he lives today with his son, the dog, 5 cats, some goats and countless chickens.

In Jan 2011 Michael joined the SkillSoft team, bringing his passion for technology and 30 years of industry experience to bear in the online classroom environment.
