I am a technologist who loves making things go faster. I use bleeding edge technology and environment tuning to help infrastructures and databases perform at their maximum potential. I specialize in SQL Server, VMware and other virtualization technologies, programming, system administration, storage, networking, and project management. I speak periodically at SQL Server and VMware events. I am certified as a Microsoft Certified IT Professional in Database Administration as well as VMware Certified Advanced Professional in Datacenter Design. Outside of work I enjoy just about anything with at least one wheel and a motor.
