I am currently a Senior DBA for Integrys Energy Services in Green Bay, WI. I’ve been a DBA since 2008 and have worked primarily with SQL Server versions 2005 and above supporting databases as large as 6TB.

My blog is syndicated from www.adamkreul.com and you can follow me on Twitter at @AdamKreul.
