About me

I am currently the Managing Database Engineer for Lifepoint health in which I lead a team responsible for managing and engineering solutions in database technologies for 90 hospitals and hundreds of clinics. I have been working with and supporting SQL Server for predominantly for in healthcare since 2008 in a lot of different areas. While database administration is definitely my bread and butter, I have also worked extensively in architecture, development and BI. One of my favorite things to do is discover ways to solve problems that plague the every day database professional and share it with others. I often have great ideas (at least I think so) about tools that can be created to make life a little easier and enjoy working on these. Hopefully, you begin seeing more of this on my blog as I start documenting these. I also really enjoy finding ways to make SQL Server cheaper (since it ain’t cheap) and performance tuning.

In the day to day life, I have young kids so that consumes a large part of my day when not working. I have some hobbies like gaming, watching football (any and all), tv shows, cooking and running. However, I do not get to spend as much time with those as I like, because as I mentioned I have kids. So my real hobbies are pushing swings, throwing frisbees, building hot wheel ramps, picking up toys, playing referee and putting air in flat bike tires. Of course, would not trade those for anything.

Oh yeh… one other thing. I am still getting the hang of this blogging thing so the page may be changing often. Who knew it was so complicated…. Because I am still trying to figure out how to get picture on the right hand side, I am placing it at the bottom of this. One day though you will look here and it will be in the correct place, but that day is not today.
