I'm currently a SQL Server Support Engineer at Microsoft. I started working with SQL Server as a hands-on DBA back on SQL 6.5. From there I've gone back and forth from either being technical support for DBA's or being a DBA myself. I also spent two years as a DBA for an enterprise level, web based call center application with an Oracle 9i database.
I'm happily employed and not looking to change. I can be talked into short projects or consulting work.
