I am a recognised industry expert in the fields of Data Architecture and SQL Server. I am a published author on SQL Server encryption, have written numerous articles for SQL Server Central and run a popular blog on subjects around SQL Server and database development.

I specialise in design of highly scalable, resilient and performant database systems as well as troubleshooting performance and other issues. Looking for clients big and small, for short through to long term engagements.

I’ve worked with SQL Server for over 20 years both as a permanent employee and a private consultant. Organisations I’ve worked with include KPMG, Barclays Bank, Nationwide Building Society, The Office of National Statistics, Iress FS, and Optiver among many others. I’m driven by client satisfaction and always have good relationships with those I work with.

I offer a number of SQL Server services to clients including jumping in for emergencies, performing in-depth server healthchecks, training and coaching, remote DBA services, managing upgrades and migrations (including cloud migrations) as well as general consultancy.
