In the last 27 of my more than 30 years as an IT Professional I spent the majority of the time exploring the deeper inner workings of SQL Server and his features while working for entertainment , pharmaceutical and other industry leading companies. The main focus of my work is to architect, plan and provide a reliable, highly available, secure  and scalable  infrastructure for and with the features of SQL Server. This covers all angles from hardware, network, storage systems, Operating systems, SQL Server configuration and the Data Access Layer of applications; 
Currently I work at one of the largest SQL Server installations in the world processing hundreds of millions  of transactions daily while moving peta bytes of data  in a 24x7 environment ;  
Now its time to share all the findings and the gathered know how with the SQL Server community therefore I started speaking regularly at international conferences in North America and Europe and at local events and work closely with SQLCAT  to make sure everyone interested can access the information.
