Who I Am
I’m a 41 year-old living in Iowa with my wife and two small kids.
What I Do
When I was eight years old, I had a blast programming in AppleSoft. Also, I wanted to be a teacher. Not much has changed. I’m lucky to combine those two interests by teaching people about databases as well as performance tuning them.
(By “them”, I mean databases, but I performance-tune people in a manner of speaking.)
Outside of my work, I’m active in the SQL Server community. I give presentations around the country both on SQL Server and professional development. I also served as a board member for the Denver SQL Server User Group.
