Who am I?

My name is Thamim Karim and I am the guy behind the Virtual Vibes blog! I worked for Microsoft for nearly 4 years and in that time have been all over the world talking to customers about App-V and their wider strategies. I also started Virtual Vibes which is geared around me sharing my findings on technology with the wider community. Since then I have also been awarded MVP status by Microsoft as a Windows IT Pro for my work in the community around App-V and related technologies.

I am extremely passionate about technology and I love to explain the complex in a simple and easy to follow manner, hopefully that comes across in my posts and presentations! I absolutely loved my time at Microsoft and since moving on I have begun offering consultancy and training services to organisations across the UK, at present my primary customer is a large investment bank in London where I am involved in a huge global desktop transformation project.

Some random things about me…

I live in the UK, just outside London in a place called Surrey.


The highlight of my career so far was speaking at TechEd North America 2014 over in Houston:

I got married back in May 2013:

I have also been known to rap on occasions under the name F-Nik:

I love playing football:

and support Arsenal football club:
