I have been developing software from my early teens and stayed with technology after leaving school. Initially focussing on software development, networking and IT support type roles, I found my passion for SQL server shortly after the millennium and never looked back. Having a grounding in application development/networking, I have a great advantage when it comes to developing solutions with SQL server at the heart. But more importantly, after supporting a breadth of technical to non-technical users over the years, I understand how people use systems and what they need from SQL based technical solutions.
I've watched SQL server evolve from version 8 (SQL 2000) and with each release the product continues to amaze me with the power and features that it provides. We are in an era of data and it is great being a data professional.
