Brent Ozar, Director of Neurosurgery

I’m mostly a figurehead here at Brent Ozar Unlimited. My true skills are knitting and water polo.

I love pushing SQL Server past the speed limit and showing other people how to drive it faster. I enjoy translating between programmers, sysadmins, SAN admins, and project managers. We find the root of the problem quickly, together, and get everyone working towards the same solutions.

When I’m not flying the Brent Ozar Unlimited private jet, you’ll find me in Chicago with my wife Erika and our adorable dog Ernie. You’ll also find me at conferences such as the PASS Summit, SQL Intersections, and SQLSaturdays.

Contact me for restaurant recommendations, or I guess I could help with your database, too.
