Hello, I’m Zach!

I’m a Database Administrator currently living in the south coast of England.

I spend much of my free time studying SQL Server, and posting my findings here on my site. I first started doing this as a means to re-enforce things I’d read, but quickly found that I enjoyed technical writing and started blogging more often. I also partake in the MSDN Forums and Stack Overflow as a way of sharing what I’ve learned, helping others, and learning things you wouldn’t necessarily come across in books or your own work environment.

The time I have away from work and SQL Server is typically used running, walking, or playing badminton to try and keep myself in reasonable shape, watching films and TV series like Dexter, House, Breaking Bad, and Game of Thrones (and too many more to continue listing here) with my wonderful girlfriend Libbie, or occasionally playing video games with friends.

I’m a big animal lover, and currently have a small tropical fish tank. Getting some cats and a dog or two will be top of my priority list as soon as I know I can dedicate the time required to take of them properly. I’d buy my own zoo and aquarium if money were no object…

Follow me on twitter via @ZachStagers if you want to hear me ramble on about SQL Server, TV & Films, Sport, and all manor of other nonsense.

Thanks for taking the time to check my site out, and I hope you find it useful. Please feel free to comment on my posts – I’ll endeavour to reply as quickly as possible.
