He has been with Quest since 2001, working on the Toad R&D, Product Management, and Sales organizations. Jeff is the primary author of the Toad Handbook, 2nd Edition, published by O'Reilly and is currently working with Bert and Patrick on the next edition! He holds a bachelor's degree in Computer Science from West Virginia University. Jeff is a regular speaker at Toad User Groups and Oracle User Groups worldwide. While not travelling to exotic locales like Melbourne, Australia or Peoria, Illinois, Jeff attempts to keep up with the Toad developers mountain-biking around Raleigh, NC.
Patrick McGrath is a technical marketing representative at Quest Software.
Bert Scalzo is a Quest software developer and well-known author in the Oracle/SQL world.
