I am delighted to introduce another new SQL Server 2008 Certified Master to the MCM community. Please join me in welcoming Argenis Fernandez, our newest SQL Certified Master.

Here is a brief introduction:

Argenis has been working with SQL Server for around 14 years. An active member of the SQL Server community, he has presented at multiple SQL Saturday events, and also at the PASS Summit 2011. His main areas of interest are SQL and OS internals, scripting and HA/DR. He loves making things run fast(er).

Argenis is a Sr. DBA at Coinstar. He blogs at http://www.sqlblog.com/blogs/argenis_fernandez/ and can be found on Twitter as @DBArgenis. If you are on Twitter and in the local Redmond/Seattle area, you may want to also keep an eye on the #SQLNomz hash tag. This hash tag is used to schedule impromptu get-togethers, usually instigated by Argenis.
