SQL Barbarian

After working in the mortgage industry for 7 years, I transitioned into Business Intelligence and began learning SQL and .NET. My goal is to integrate my business knowledge into my development to intelligently analyze and find solutions to problems. Blogging offers me an option to share what I've learned as well as receive feedback on better practices and solutions.
