Cleveland DBA

SQL Server administration in Cleveland, OH

A little about me…

My name is Colleen M. Morrow and I am a Database Administrator currently living and working in (wait for it)… Cleveland, OH.

My IT career began somewhere around the age of 10 when my father brought home a Commodore Vic 20.  I started writing little BASIC programs to display pictures of houses and butterflies.  But my life’s work was writing a choose-your-own-story program.  (I was 10, ok?)  Alas, I reached the end of the Vic 20’s 5K of memory before I reached the end of my story.  *sigh*

Fast-forwarding a bit, I started working with databases about 15 years ago when I did technical support for Informix databases and programming languages in my hometown of Buffalo, NY.  In 1998, I left Buffalo to take a programming job here in Cleveland.  Since then I’ve spent a lot of time wondering whether it’s better to have never been in the Superbowl or to have lost it 4 years in a row.

In early 2000, I decided I wanted to try my hand at database administration.  I was hired to my current position initially as an Informix DBA, and since then I’ve transitioned to Oracle DBA and finally to SQL Server DBA.  There’s a little part of me that remains a programmer, though, and I love writing code to make my DBA work easier.

I can be found on Twitter as @ClevelandDBA.
