A music lover, a book bug to the core, a globetrotter, a movie buff, a regular speaker at technical user groups, and an active blogger – I am a simple man who loves enjoying simple things in life and creating something extraordinary out of the ordinary. My insatiable desire to keep learning keeps the dynamic blogger in me on his toes. Besides, I take keen interest in sharing my knowledge and solving my readers’ technology-related problems.
Education & Qualifications
I am a SQL Server Professional with over 11 years of experience as a Principal Database Architect, Developer, Administrator and Project Manager specializing in SQL Server Programming. I am also the founder and a prominent author of SQLAuthority.com. A profuse writer, I have authored over 3300 SQL Server articles at SQLAuthority.com, and I am a regular columnist for several prominent IT websites and magazines.
My rich and varied work experience is backed with my strong educational qualification and technical competency. I have earned a degree in Masters of Science (Computer Networks) from the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, California. In addition, I have accomplished a number of certifications including MCDBA, MCAD (.NET) and ColdFusion Advanced MX. To top it all, I am an expert in SQL Server 2012 / SQL Server 2008/2005.
As a professional I do not believe in performing run-of-the mill tasks. I love exploring and believe in innovation. My day-to-day routine office life includes designing complex and scalable database structures; and managing large outsourcing projects and of course, sipping hot coffee and chatting with my co-workers about anything and everything, be it work related or non-work related.
In my organization I have introduced strategic advancements in the query optimization and performance scalability area. Also, I regularly communicate and represent ideas through data model documentation. From time to time, I have taken ownership of current operational data structures and initiate optimizations and reconfigurations as warranted.
My primary interest and core expertise lies in SQL Server and Database Architecture. I have collected my thoughts, opinions, in fact my mind, at one common place accessible to all – SQLAuthority.com – which is truly a paradise encyclopedia for all SQL lovers. This information-rich website contains over 3300 articles focused on SQL Server 2012 and SQL Server 2008/2005 technologies. My Blog articles range from simple SQL scripts to complicated SQL problems and solutions. This popular knowledge resource has readers from across the globe. Like the Pied Piper, I have been able to create a long queue of readers who look up to me for answers to their varying complexities of SQL problems, and I have always gone the extra mile to solve their queries in the best possible way.
