In 1994, you could find Rick Morelan braving the frigid waters of the Bering Sea as an Alaskan commercial fisherman. His computer skills were non-existent at the time, so you might figure such beginnings seemed unlikely to lead him down the path to SQL expertise at Microsoft. However, every computer expert in the world today woke up at some point in their life knowing nothing about computers. It was a long and difficulty Journey for Rick as he transitioned from a life on the sea to an IT Professional and he is committed to helping others make similar transitions.
