Matt is a self-proclaimed uber-nerd. Think less “popular taxi service” and more “marching band, Magic the Gathering and Dungeons & Dragons” – now we're on the same page.
Being a nerd comes with a love for tech, and Matt’s fascination with it started at a young age. His knack for working on printers and PCs led him to become the unofficial IT guy at his high school.
Fast forward to today, and Matt holds over a decade of SQL experience. A Disabled Army Veteran, he’s worked for the Department of Defense and in health information as a HIPAA privacy/security officer, DBA and security auditor.
With all that experience, Matt is quite the SQL Server security guru. He speaks at SQL Saturdays and conferences nationwide, including the FBI Information Security War Summit. He loves teaching so much that he does it for free – typical teacher.
When Matt surfaces from his immersion in nerdom, he enjoys playing football, baseball, going to the movies, hitting the golf course or spending time with family.
Matthew has been really busy, but we'll get some of that brilliant content out of them soon.
