First time author, long time DBA, new father, and new to blogging.

My career has been varied over the years, however I have been doing contract/consulting work over the past few.

The DBA role is one that I gravitated to as it is a widely varying role that provides an outlet for my troubleshooting skills, creative problem solving, and I do not find myself doing the same repetitive tasks over and over, day in and day out. Easily bored, the IT sector suits me well.

I also play a little guitar with a love of blues music. A member of the Washington Missouri Blues Society, I can sometimes be found at the weekly Blues Society Open Jam Session.
