As a Microsoft Certified Master/Microsoft Certified Solutions Master and SQL Server MVP, I have over 20 years’ experience in the technology industry, including more than 10 with SQL Server. I also earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Information Systems from Utah State University. One of the highlights of my career was co-authoring multiple volumes in the SQL Server T-SQL Recipes series of books. I am a frequent presenter at SQL Server events worldwide, which includes SQLSaturdays and User Groups.
I love finding that magic turbo button to make queries go faster which ultimately leads to huge relief and satisfaction for the client. I have done that sort of work for clients of all sizes throughout the world. I have experience with multi-TB databases as well as environments with thousands of SQL Server instances to manage.
