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.”

After all the conversations at FreeCon last week (more on that later, when I’ve assimilated it better), I finally decided to make some changes. The list of things I’m hitting is extremely long, but I’m going to be going through them a few at a time. First, and easiest, was getting moved off the WordPress domain to my own, hosted, domain.
You’re seeing the results. This is the new ScaryDBA blog. I suspect the theme may change once or twice over the next week, but basically, all the functionality that has been added, better feeds, conversation tracking, other stuff, will remain.
Thank you for visiting in the past. I intend to provide you with plent of reasons to visit in the future.
