About Life

I was born in Hyderabad, Pakistan and moved to USA with my parents in 1993. Most of my life I’ve spent in and around Albany, NY. Currently, I reside in DFW (Dallas / Fort Worth) area with my wife and three handsome sons.

I got my bachelor of science in Computer System Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in 2003. Job market wasn’t so hot back then so I started to work as Computer Operator and worked my way up. Thanks to a mentor who pushed me into the database world. And that is how I became a DBA
