About Mike

Mike Richardson
Systems Engineer for Pure Storage

I was born, grew up, and still live in the Kansas City area.

I’ve been in the Information Technology industry for 14 years.  I’ve spent time as Server, Storage and Backup Administrators, so I know what it feels like to be a customer.  For the last 10 years, I’ve worked with dozens of customers implementing storage and data protection solutions for both medium sized businesses and enterprises alike.  I’m no stranger to complicated and seemingly impossible storage management and data protection scenarios and I enjoy helping customers navigate these challenges.  I’m passionate about simplified data management strategies and solutions as well as sharing my experiences with customers.

I’m the proud father of 3 beautiful girls and the spoiled husband to a wife who takes far better care of me than I deserve.
