I am currently working as a senior consultant for the North America Sun/MySQL professional services team.
My background is in physics but since my Ph. D., back in 1995, but I have nearly only worked in computer science ever since.
In my professional practice, my areas of specialty are Heartbeat/DRBD setups and NDB Cluster. I have also done a lot of work with large sharded databases. I have a good programming experience with various languages like C, Java, Python and Perl and I am one of the maintainers of the WaffleGrid project which extends InnoDB over Memcached.
I live Sherbrooke, Québec, Canada (or should I say a Hilton family hotel somewhere) and I have three wonderful daughters.
