Brady Leavitt | Cloud Solution Architect
Microsoft

I am part of Microsoft Azure’s Data & A.I. field practice working as a solution architect with companies in the Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio areas. I do data. I get particularly excited about opportunities to help companies earn more and spend less with data – making it faster, bigger, easier, and smarter. Outside of work, I am always on the hunt for great restaurants/dives. I enjoy just about anything outdoors – hiking, biking, running, climbing – and hanging out with the family.

Jeremy Gray | Cloud Solution Architect
Microsoft

I’ve spent a long time working with business partners across the healthcare, credit card, payroll, and commodities trading spaces implementing technology solutions that drive business outcomes. During these projects, I’ve had the privilege to work with a lot of high-performing and multidisciplinary teams and have seen how they succeed and fail. I love how the cloud has changed the way we work and am excited to see what amazing new technology the future brings.

When I’m not building things at work I enjoy making things on my 3d printer and laser cutter, along with making some sawdust in the garage. My wife and I live in Louisville, Kentucky with our three children.
