"Database Administrator" for a small Insurance Broker in England.
I use the quotes as, being a small business, although my role is called Database Administrator, you often need to be a jack of all trades for small companies. As a result I have exposure to Network Administration, Web Development, and some server maintenance (mainly the Ubuntu servers at the office); so although I'm not trained I've had to assist enough times to know what I'm looking for or at (which greatly helps when a problem isn't SQL Server based).
SQL Server enthusiast, however, little to no experience on other RDBMSs. Linux and Windows user, with VB.Net experience, and enjoy to dabble in PoSH and Bash. I can read C#, it is a .Net language after all, but I'm hopeless at writing it; for some reason it's always escaped my grasp. I can't even blame it on the compulsory semi-colons as (one day) they'll be compulsory in T-SQL too (bring it on SQL Server 2037!).
You can find articles I've written on my website, as well at on SQL Server Central. A favourite subject of mine is dynamic SQL, along with making sure that you are safe (from injection) when using it and SQL Server on Linux.
