George Lorch

Software Engineer, Percona

George joined the Percona development team in April 2012. George has over 20 years of experience in software support, development, architecture and project management. Prior to joining Percona, George was focused on Windows based enterprise application server development and network protocol classification and optimization with heavy doses of database schema design, architecture and tuning. George lives in the beautiful mountains of north-central Arizona with his wife and cat. His hobbies are fiddling with cool bits of technology, home brewing and winemaking, tending his ever growing garden, hiking, fishing, camping and otherwise enjoying the out of doors as much as possible.
