I'm a data architect who loves Oracle databases, working for Intermountain Healthcare in Salt Lake City for the past 18 years. What's a data architect? Well, I never try to explain my job to people because either you know what I do or you don't, and explanations won't make it any clearer!
I grew up in California, but I've been proud to call Utah home since 1995. My wife and I love to travel. I also like to take pictures. Mostly, I share the pictures on Facebook, but I recently opened an Instagram account, and I've been giving that a whirl, too. (I took the photo serving as the background for this page in my old neighborhood on New Years Day a couple years ago; I plan to change the photo regularly.)
I run to keep in shape, and I've run three full marathons and more than a dozen half marathons -- all after the age of 45. I have a goal to run 1500 miles in 2013 (so far, I'm still on track!).
