Now, switching from the professional third-person voice to the real-life first-person voice…
I live in Westminster in colorful Colorado with my partner, Kellyn Pot’vin, who is herself an enormously talented multi-platform database administrator on Oracle, SQL Server, and MySQL and she blogs as DBAKevlar. I have two children, my son Peter and my daughter Marika, and I live with Kellyn and her three children, two dogs, and a cat.
I’m on Facebook, but that I try to separate that out for my personal life, and do not “friend” professional acquaintances unless they have become part of my personal life.
For fun, in winter I snowboard the steeps and deeps, in summer I bicycle (road) long distances, and play squash in any season when I can find someone of like mind.
