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. The primary vertical market I work in is healthcare.

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

Yes, my wife and I did live in our RV full time with a dog and a cat during the last part of 2018, all of 2019, and the beginning part of 2020. It actually worked quite well! While we have since sold that particular RV, we do plan to get another one in the near future although I doubt that it will be for full-time again.

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!
