- SQL Server, Disasters, Cave Rescue
I’m just getting started here so bear with me as I figure out the lay of the land.
I’m a SQL DBA with over 20 years of experience with SQL Server.
I’ve been speaking at SQL Saturday Events for over 3 years now and love to see new speakers breaking into the field.
In addition to SQL, I also am a caver and teach cave rescue. I also enjoy studying disasters such as plane crashes.
I’ve combined my interests in these three fields into a book, currently on Amazon (small plug) IT Disaster Response: Lessons Learned in the Field.
I’d love to say my first SQL Saturday speaking engagement was a downright success with a standing ovation at the end. But alas, honesty and modesty prevails and I have to say far from that. The title was “Tips that Saved my Bacon.” Before I even started the presentation, a woman in the back raised her hand and asked, “What is bacon?” Fortunately it got better from there.
If I can survive that, you can survive your first speaking experience.
I’m looking forward to working with folks who like to combine slightly offbeat topics into something educational and entertaining.
