I am Martin Fraley. I was born and raised in North Carolina and are now living in a small North Carolina town called Troy.

I have worked in IT for many years as a database admin. I worked a lot with SQL and one day I thought I should create an SQL website. I wanted to create a site where I could give some of the things I have learned over the years. Things such as how to optimize your code to create the fastest, most effective database queries or even more just how IT corporations work in general. I have worked in many major IT companies in various position so I know many different ways to handle things.

But life took another route than the one I imagined. After many years of improper positioning when using my laptop I started to feel stiff and got back pain. It eventually got so bad I had to put the SQLUniverse project to a halt and take some time off.

Fortunately, I feel a lot better now after many doctors appointments and treatments. I was ready to start up this website. I do not want anyone to get in the position I was in so when I am not posting articles about SQL or working in the technology sector, I will give advice to proper laptop usage.

I have over 10 years of experience in the technology sector so I like to think I have some good things to share. I still have a family, work and other interests to tend to but I will try to post here whenever I have the time to do so. If you want to reach me you can post a comment or send an email to admin@sqlserveruniverse.com. I will answer you as soon as i have the time.
