I am a technologist that is lucky enough to be in a career that encompasses what I truly enjoy – working in high technology, and using cutting edge technology to make businesses more efficient. I am the Founder and Chief Architect of Heraflux Technologies. I travel around the world working with companies of all sizes, from Fortune 100 to mom-and-pop shops, on the convergence of data, cloud, and infrastructure.

My mission is simple: use the right technology to solve the hardest problems, improve the quality of work, and save the most money for organizations everywhere.

I am heavily involved in numerous technology-related communities. The SQL Server community is arguably my favorite. I’ve never seen another technical community be as friendly and open as this one. One of my core philosophies is to be the mentor you never had but have been looking for, so I am heavily involved in education and mentorship  because I want to give back to the world.

I am also the lead of the PASS High Availability and Disaster Recovery Virtual Chapter. The virtual chapter meets the second Tuesday of each month for a one hour technical presentation on high availability and disaster recovery topics. For more information about this virtual chapter, click here.
