I am a Microsoft Certified Master and a Microsoft MVP. I fell in love with the challenge of deploying software to a complex database environment when I worked in a build operations team at a software startup, back in the early 2000’s. I went on to become a database administrator for performance critical databases at Microsoft Corporation.
Since then, I’ve worked internationally as a teacher and consultant, specializing in performance tuning, architecture, and operational excellence with the Microsoft Data Platform. I co-founded Brent Ozar Unlimited, and later started up the training site SQL Workbooks as a solo project. I joined Redgate as a DevOps Evangelist in 2018.
