I am a SQL Server DBA in Ottawa Canada.

I am the founding partner of DBA Depot and the president of Metropolis Dreamware and Cooking With SQL. We provide database consultants to various public and private sector organizations.

I am a technical editor for SQL Server Magazine and the author of the T-SQL 101 series of articles / e-book.

I have been a SQL Server DBA since the bad old days of SQL 4.2.
