My Approach

I believe in focusing on the things that will make the biggest difference as fast as possible.

I won't give you long lists of tail-chasing chores that won't solve any problems.

There's enough outdated information and not-best practices out there already.

Meet the Me

Hi, I'm Erik.

I love query and index tuning, writing about SQL Server, and contributing to the community.

I've written a book about SQL Server, and almost 400 (mostly) technical blog posts about it.

You can follow me on Twitter, if you're into that sort of thing.

I also answer questions for Stack Exchange Miles.

After working high pressure production DBA jobs, consulting with Brent Ozar Unlimited, and getting laid off, I decided I wanted to be my own boss, do the kind of consulting that would make me happy, and fill what I thought was a big gap: the hit and run consultant and the long term remote DBA.
