Welcome to my blog. I am a SQL Server DBA (Database Administrator) in metro Atlanta, Georgia. I have also helped organize the past couple of Atlanta SQL Saturdays. I enjoy attending PASS events and spending time with #SQLFamily.

I am the Lead Database Administrator at my company where I am a member of our DevOps team. As part of adopting the DevOps culture, I am working towards getting my databases into source control and implementing unit testing. Due to my understanding of the applications and our distributed architecture, I am also currently working on a data warehouse so that we can implement self-service BI at my company.

While I really love SQL Server, I do have some hobbies other than databases, SQL, and DevOps. During the spring and fall, I can often be found playing 9 holes of disc golf after work. During the summer, I will go tubing on the Chattahoochee River. I also have two Siberian Huskies that I absolutely adore.
