Full Biography

I am enthusiastic about technology in general.  Most of my early experience was as a general system's administrator.  I hung a right into SQL Server land about 3 years ago and have been working as a DBA ever since.  I enjoy myself quite thoroughly in the database role, with tendencies more towards the ops and automation side of database administration - but I do like query tuning and T-SQL development too!  Microsoft shop means MS SQL Server; however, I am recently moving into Oracle 12c as a side hobby.

I have additionally embarked on the blogging journey: http://padawandba.azurewebsites.net/ .
