The Scary DBA

I have twenty+ years experience in IT. That time was spent in technical support, development and database administration. I work forRed Gate Software as a Product Evangelist. I write articles for publication at SQL Server Central, Simple-Talk, PASS Book Reviews and SQL Server Standard. I have published two books, ”Understanding SQL Server Execution Plans” and “SQL Server 2008 Query Performance Tuning Distilled.” I’m one of the founding officers of the Southern New England SQL Server Users Group and its current president. I also work on part-time, short-term, off-site consulting contracts. In 2009 and 2010 I was awarded as a Microsoft SQL Server MVP. In the past I’ve been called rough, intimidating and scary. To which I usually reply, “Good.” You can contact me through grant -at- scarydba dot kom (unobfuscate as necessary).

Proof


SQL Rockstar tells me that unless there are photo’s, it didn’t happen. Brad McGehee published some pictures from DevConnections. See, I really do try to get people to buy my book… uh, I mean present technical sessions at conferences.

One of these things is not like the others…

And it was tasty! Maybe they ought to supply those at the PASS Summit too.

Oh, and next time (assuming there is one), please, no white shirts.
