meh, yeah that's me.

 I try to spend my time self improving, prepping for more Microsoft Certifications,making myself better DBA by improving my PowerBI, Datawarehousing skills, and building up my awesome toolkit of DBA utilities..
I spend a lot of time watching SQL or .NET related videos for tips and tricks. I'm currently involved in two education tracks related to R and machine learning, and also in how to use the Highcharts javascript libraries for awesome dynamic charting in HTML5. Where some people bing watch House of Cards, I've plowed through materials like's Microsoft DAT206x Analyzing and Visualizing Data with Excel course to solidify my already strong understanding of Excel functionality when working with PowerPivot and PowerQuery

Back in October, I completed the third exam in my Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate certification.

 I've  enhanced myself to Linkedin because I work with so many awesome and knowledgeable professionals, that I have either worked with in the past, or have the honor to work with currently, encouraged me to join so they could link to me as well.

I do contribute a lot to SQL Server, where my profile shows I've contributed more than 14 thousand posts over the course of my sql career; Quite a number of my script contributions are somewhat well known in this vertical segment of knowledge, so I've got that going for me, which is nice.
