Brent Ozar, Director of Neurosurgery

I make Microsoft SQL Server go faster. I love teaching, travel, and laughing. I live in Iceland with my wife Erika. He/him.

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.
