I’ve been a Lone DBA for 15 years, working with all aspects of SQL Server and Oracle. I am currently the co-leader for the Hampton Roads SQL Server User Group and can be found on Twitter daily as @SQLEspresso. I am passionate about SQL Server and the #SQLFamily, doing anything I can to give back to such a wonderful community.

When I’m not busy with work, you will find me playing taxi to my two daughters back and forth to dance classes.
