Welcome to BlobEater

Featured

I am an IT Professional from the UK with a huge interest in MS technology especially SQL Server and Azure. During 2015 I was mentored by Paul Randal  from SQLskills.

I have written articles for SQL Server Central, TechNet, gathered data for SQLskills Waits and Latches Library. I have also helped the SQL Server product team with testing SQL Server vNext adaptive query processing feature.

I am also a member of Microsoft’s Azure Advisors and SQL Advisors Group.

My aim is to help you in your day to day work or to reinforce specific areas that I am interested in, so I try to keep things short and simple.
