I get asked all sorts of questions. Usually, they’re from folks who really don’t understand what I do. Explaining that typically generates even more questions! I can generally roll them up into the following:

So, you’re an architect? Like in buildings?

No, I don’t design buildings. But I do design data storage systems, databases and data warehouses. I also design processes and procedures related to the use of data storage, analytics and reporting.

You live in a RV? As in, full time? How does that work?

Yes, my wife and I do live in our RV full time with a dog and a cat. It actually works quite well. Our unit is fairly well insulated (for an RV) for winter use and is optimal for the other seasons.

What kind of presentations do you give?

While the majority of my presentations are centered around database design and development, I also give presentations on professional development — even a presentation on how to give presentations!
