First off, welcome and thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.
It’s my hope, that this blog will serve many purposes.
- Allow me to record my thoughts (Whether anyone wants to hear them or not is to be seen)
- Document the work that I am doing in case future Josh forgets (We know he will)
- Provide a platform for the community to get to know me better
So who am I?
My name is Joshua Higginbotham, and I currently work for a Regional Bank based out of Louisville, KY. My current role with the bank is the Data Services Manager for our Tax Solutions Business. This is basically a fancy title for saying, I work with the Business Intelligence stack. I’ve worked across many areas of IT over the last 7 years, spending time in Software Development, Database Administration, and now Business Intelligence.
Outside of the tech field, I spent a little over 13 years in the Kentucky Army National Guard. Over that career, I worked in Recruiting, spent time deployed to Africa in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, and served as a Section Crew Chief leading some of the finest soldiers in the Guard. I was blessed with a smooth career that taught me how to lead and I hope that I can use this experience as time goes on.
If you’d like to get to know me better, I’m pretty active on twitter. So feel free to hit the twitter social link on the top right section of my blog to follow my posts.
