    Interview: Adam Gordon, ITProTV

    Adam Gordon
    Entertainer at ITProTV.
    Not too long ago, rock star legend Jimi Hendrix posed the important question, “are you experienced,” foreshadowing the birth of one of the most expert Microsoft experts in the history of experts, Adam Gordon. Holding 160 certifications and counting, Adam’s encyclopedia of knowledge is only rivaled by his massive, and quite ridiculous, collection of socks. Adam’s 30+ years as an IT instructor in the private and public sectors are fueled by his passion for gobbling down espresso like a college kid downing beers at Oktoberfest. His long hair and assortment of bracelets are a memento of his days working in the music industry, rubbing shoulders with celebrities in exclusive European clubs, but he now lives the quiet, married life in South Florida, teaching and traveling with his wife and two daughters. Learn all things Microsoft with Adam and stay updated on the latest trends in sock fashion live and on-demand with ITProTV.
