Currently I am a consultant for HP's Vertica. Previously, I was a Jr. Database Administrator and before that, a SQL Server Database Programmer. My graduate research and studies are primarily involved with database models and optimization. I like to write on my blog about technical problems which I've encountered. Feedback is always welcome and appreciated.

I'm a Pastafarian and part of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
