I’m Bob Pusateri, Database Administrator for the Northwestern University Medical Enterprise Data Warehouse in Chicago. Prior to this, I spent a few years as a DBA and application developer in the financial analysis and electronic trading fields.
And if you’re curious, no, I’ve never seen the movie.
What I do for fun
I do lots of work with SQL Server! I love what I do, so work really is fun for me. Outside of the office you’ll probably find me out and about with my trusty Nikon, working around the house, or just spending quality time with my lovely wife, Michelle. I’m a member of both the Chicago and Chicago Suburban chapters of PASS, and I enjoy speaking at user group meetings and events like SQL Saturday whenever I get the chance.
