Ryan has worked as an IT Professional since 2000, beginning as a Windows Systems Administrator. In 2001 he got more involved with SQL Server and changed from
focusing on active directory and windows servers, to becoming a dedicated DBA.   He now focuses his time on performance tuning, windows
clustering, availability, and SAN performance.  Ryan is currently employed at se2 in Topeka Kansas and manages hundreds of SQL servers with a team of DBAs.

SQL Server and programming are Ryan’s main hobbies.  When he isn’t programming, learning new techniques, (or playing online video games…) he’s
spending time with his wife and two daughters.
