I’m an 18-year vet of SQL Server currently living in Kentucky. I started off as a developer who turned into an accidental DBA as most of us do. I started working with SQL Server full time back in 2000. Most of my speaking originally centered around Juvenile Diabetes which I’m an advocate for. Over time I felt as though I could start helping others in my own industry. After becoming an Assistant Vice President|Database Administration Manager I found myself with speaking opportunities that I never thought I would have. If you’ve been around me long enough then you will know I’m big on if we just reach one person than it is all worth it.

The art of public speaking can be both daunting and rewarding. I’m living proof that if you put hard work into it you will be able to succeed. Everyone has some sort of story to share; don’t wait another minute.

The people found on this site are here to help and some of the best data professionals around.
