I'm a SQL Server Consultant (MCTS, MCITP) at Kohera in Belgium, and have been working with SQL Server since 2000. I have a lot of experience with managing large databases in telecom and finance environments. Performance tuning, SQL audits, migrations and training are also part of the job. I have also a profound knowledge in implementing high availability and disaster recovery solutions (Microsoft Failover Clustering, AlwaysOn Availability Groups, Database Mirroring, …). I'm a regular speaker at events in Belgium like SQL Server Days, 12 hours of SQL 2012, Community Day and Microsoft TechNet Live Meetings.
