About Me

About Me

jm_twitterMy name is John Morehouse and I live/work in the Louisville, Kentucky area.  I’ve always considered myself a jack of all trade, having various technical jobs through my career, but databases, Microsoft SQL Server databases specifically, is my passion.

My current SQL Server passions include (but not limited to):

  • Database Design
  • Performance Tuning
  • Transaction Logs
  • High Availability
    • Database Mirroring
    • Log Shipping
    • Replication
  • Encryption/Security
  • Speaking/Teaching

I am heavily involved in the SQL Server community.  You can see my community involvement here.

My Other Hobby

For almost 9 years, I was a volunteer fire fighter/EMT for my community.  I live in small town about 30 miles outside of Omaha.  It was an awesome hobby to have and it’s very rewarding.  Since that was a part of my life for so long, you’ll often see that “hobby” come through in my postings.

This blog is really just an attempt to get further into the SQL Server community and spread the word of SQL Server (Sounds like a religion!).  I’m not looking to make money off this blog (although, let’s be honest, that would rock!) and I don’t claim to be an expert.  There are certainly those out there (Paul Randall/Kimberly Tripp/Brent Ozar/etc) that make up that space, but hopefully I will be able to just find my niche somewhere.

With that being said, I’m putting myself out there further and would love to get feedback on what you think.  Please keep in mind that I’m relatively still new to blogging and I must say that putting thoughts down in writing is much harder than it looks.  Well, for me it is anyway so please be gentle.  =)

So, I expect this blog to be fluid and ever growing, so if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to leave them!
