I am a Microsoft Premier Field Engineer who has worked with Microsoft SQL Server since the 1996 time frame (version 4.2). I have a B.A. degree in Chemistry from Texas A&M University (whoop!) and live in the Dallas area. I love working with databases and have had a very interesting career at Microsoft for the last 10 years that has taken me to Europe, Africa and Southwest Asia as well as all over the U.S.
I have thought about setting up my own blog for quite some time. My primary reason for doing so is to try and share with others what I have learned over the years. There are probably thousands of SQL bloggers out there, and I’m not going to try and “out do” anyone else – but periodically I do come across things where I feel I can shed some light and perhaps help others.
One of my specialties is high availability and disaster recovery. During my career at Microsoft, I spent a few years in support as a Support Escalation Engineer focusing on AlwaysOn Availability Groups and Failover Clustering. I’m very passionate about these features and want to help others implement, support and troubleshoot them.
Thank you for visiting my blog. If you have questions or comments about any of my articles or scripts – please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org 🙂
