Full Biography

You need an Access/VBA/SQL expert to develop and support successful database solutions that will take your business to a new tomorrow.  I'm that guy.

I am a proven end-to-end database developer that can turn your vision into a stable application that will support future enhancements.

Expertise:  user need analysis, business and technical requirement documentation, data modeling,  relational data structures, user interface design, quality assurance, budget, resource management, database consulting, multi-source, multi-relational databases, team management, strategic consulting.

My databases use table driven, user-maintained processes to ensure current requirement are met, without requiring developer expertise to update and maintain variables.  My reports are built on pass-thru queries created on-the-fly and executed by SQL server, which optimizes response time and eliminates processing overhead required by plain Access queries.  Reports can be generated in a variety of user-chosen formats (printed, display-only, output to Excel, CSV, plain text, or PDF).  My forms are interactive, closely tuned to business practices and processes, and allow you and your staff speedy data entry, automated processing.

I'm all about using Access, VBA, and SQL to increase your data accuracy, reduce processing time, and enhance your bottom line.
