Jeremy has been with Yahoo! for almost five years. His Yahoo! career started with the high-traffic Yahoo! Finance site, where he worked to make MySQL part of the site's core infrastructure in large batch operations, as well as real-time feed processing and serving content directly on the site.

He has since worked on numerous other groups including Yahoo! News, Yahoo! Personals, Yahoo! Sports, and Yahoo! Shopping. Jeremy is currently Yahoo!'s MySQL guru, working closely with Yahoo!'s many engineering groups on application architecture design, database support, tuning and troubleshooting.
Prior to joining Yahoo!, Jeremy spent three years at Marathon Oil in Findlay, Ohio building infrastructure and applications for their corporate Intranet.

He is also the author of recently published book, High Performance MySQL.
