Currently working QA on the Rackspace Drizzle team, Patrick was a QA Engineer at MySQL / Sun / Oracle since 2007, where he focused on code coverage tools, maintaining and updating the MySQL test suite, and testing with the Random Query Generator.
Prior to that, he worked in Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida’s data warehousing division, did internships for the Mayo Clinic and the NFL as a student, and spent 5 years in the Navy doing electrical work on the mighty P-3C Orion aircraft.
Patrick currently lives in Jacksonville, FL with his wife and a crazed Boston Terrier. He holds an M.S. in computer science from the University of North Florida and is a MySQL certified developer. In his free time, he likes to run, read, and think of ways to work with obscenely large amounts of data.
