Speaker Bio

After seven years in the insurance industry, he began working at Sears, Roebuck, where he has worked with both mainframes and Unix machines, serving as a programmer, project manager, Unix administrator, and DBA. He is now supporting Teradata for Sears' customer data warehouse, which contains more than 7 terabytes. He also indexed five books for Encyclopaedia Britannica's 1990 edition of Great Books of the Western World.
