A Propos de Moi

This developer tried to use NOLOCK in my data environment.

I’ve been called a lot of things (but my preferred pronouns are they/them). Starting in 2013 some folks started calling me a DBA. I’ve been the local PASS Chapter leader for Spokane WA since 2016 and in 2018 I organized our first ever SQL Saturday Spokane. (I mean it wasn’t all organized in 2018 and I had some help but you know what I mean right?) I was nominated as a PASS Outstanding Volunteer in April 2018.

I’ve been a Friend of Redgate since 2019! I love issues that revolve around data privacy, retention and compliance. I also love a good MLT where the mutton is nice and lean and the tomato is ripe. They’re so perky, I love that.

I have a completely reasonable fear of spiders and run the kids’ program at my local aikido dojo where I have been training for the since 2008 achieving the rank of nidan.
