I have been working with Microsoft technologies since the mid-90s. I started out as a VB and Active Server Pages developer and have always had a special place in my heart for SQL Server. I picked up an exam training kit for the SQL Server 7 certification and it’s been nothing but pages and b-trees since then. I have worked with most parts of the Microsoft Business Intelligence stack, which used to be represented as a diagram that looked way too much like a hamburger. I used to work for a very small firm where I was responsible for all the hardware and system administration and still enjoy working with that stuff from time to time.
I spend a lot of time volunteering. I am the treasurer of our HOA. I am a leader in the Cub Scouts. As if that weren’t enough, I also help run the DC Chapter of PASS and SQL Saturday events in DC and Baltimore.
I live in Bethesda, Maryland with my wife and son. I am originally from New York and I follow the Mets. As Jerry Seinfeld said, you know they’re not gonna win, but they’re your team and you watch them anyway. I also like board games, Star Wars, and trains:
