Biography
Qualified and experienced SQL Server 7 to 2008 R2, Oracle 9i/10g Database and MS Access database administrator, currently working for a multinational company in Manchester, UK. Also Director of Optimal Computing Limited as a SQL Server database specialist. I am an ex-IBMer with over 10 years in the technology arena, with a wide range of specialities alongside my core DBA skills, including program development, training delivery, database administration, middleware security, project management and technical architecture. Educated at Brunel University, London, I attained a degree in Computer Science with Honours before joining IBM. I specialised in Oracle Database 8i, 9i and 10g, diversified to SQL Server 2000, 2005 and 2008, was promoted to Global Technical Lead and worked with an extensive blue-chip and public sector client base - DEFRA, Capital One, AstraZeneca to name a few. After IBM I started my own company as an independent IT consultant, contracted for the NHS, worked for a Managed Services organisation, and I'm now working full-time as a SQL Server DBA and Developer for an up-and-coming entertainment company in Manchester, England. I am a member of the British Computer Society, the Institute of Engineering and Technology and the UK SQL Server User Group. I'm also an active contributor and occasional author at SQL Server Central. My skills extend beyond SQL Server and Oracle technologies as I'm also an excellent systems administrator (Microsoft), Python hobbyist and enthusiastic experimenter with the .NET Framework. I am available for remote individual and SMB consultancy for your data-related projects - just use the 'Contact Me' tab to get in touch.
