Early this afternoon I received an email from Microsoft presenting me with the 2020-2021 Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award. This is my 7th award and I am just as excited and amazed as I was for my first one.
There are so many others in the community that give their time to help others by sharing knowledge, recording videos, writing blog post and articles, mentoring others, and so much more that are deserving of this award.
Thank you to the SQL Server community and all of my friends that give me the opportunity to speak at your user groups, SQL Saturdays, and events all over the world. You all mean the world to me and I consider myself very lucky to be part of this community.
I will continue doing what I love and paying it forward by sharing knowledge, mentoring others, volunteering to help out at events, blogging, creating videos, and encouraging others to get involved.
The past 12 years being part of the SQL Server community have been some of the best years of my life. Thank you all.
