Starting as a Java Developer in 2004, I turned my interests toward databases while migrating an application from DB2 to Oracle. I now enjoy switching hats between database development and administration across multiple database platforms. I have a Master’s Degree in Information Systems and as a Database Developer, I currently focus on the SQL Server platform for an large financial services company in St.Louis.
I am an active member of PASS and a frequent speaker at several local SQL Server Events, including SQL Saturday. I regularly help with SQL Server questions on MSDN Forums. I serve on the Board of the St.Louis SQL Server User group (STLSSUG), manage the group’s social media presence (LinkedIn, Twitter) and organize SQL Saturday events in St.Louis.
