My name is Hailegziabher Dechassa, I usually go by Haile. I am a technology enthusiast with a database administration background. I grew up in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. I obtained my first degree in the year 2005 from Mekele University, Ethiopia and then my MSc from Wageningen University, The Netherlands. I have been working for different private and government projects.
Currently I am living in Columbus, Ohio and working as Database Administrator/Developer. I am also studying and about to finish my second Master’s degree in Information Systems at Fort Hayes State University. I have different certifications on information security, database administration and development including Microsoft Certified Professional, MCITP- Microsoft Certified IT Professional, MCTS- Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist: Microsoft SQL Server, Implementation and maintenance and Oracle Database 12c Certified Associate.
I am more of a Database person (Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle and MySQL) but I do also work as BI Developer, Data analyst and System Designer. I have strong interest on application/web development and spend some of my free time building a website like this one.
