I have been in the IT industry for over 14 years as a corporate database developer and architect. The majority of my experience has been with Microsoft SQL Server in every version that has been released since 4.21a. Currently I am a Senior Data Architect for Compass Technology Management, supporting the Christian Broadcasting Network and NorthStar Studios in Nashville, Tennessee.
I have a bachelor's degree in computer science from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga with a minor in mathematics. I have been a volunteer with the Professional Association for SQL Server (PASS) for over five years. In October 2004 I was awarded the Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award for SQL Server by Microsoft, an honor I am proud to have been given. In my 'free' time you can often find my writing for my blog http://spaces.msn.com/drsql or on the Microsoft SQL Server newsgroups and forums.
