Senior Content Developer, @dougthomas

Doug Thomas used to review movies and rent you -- or your parents -- VHS tapes. After 8 years at Amazon -- doing much of the same thing -- he came to Microsoft Office to get away from all of that. While being a site manager, he had an idea to get other people to create videos about Office. That idea turned into a new job of creating videos and training content for Support.Office.com including the Office 15-Minute Webinars and his current series, Doug from Office. However, none of his videos are on VHS.
