I have been working with technology since the mid-1990’s when I attended college(s) here and here. I have been focused on Oracle technology since 1998 as a database administrator and many-other-things administrator including security, Oracle Application Server, Oracle Internet Directory (OID), Oracle Identity Management, and various other products and tools. For a complete professional history, please see my resume online.
Prior to joining Oracle, I volunteered for many community-focused organizations including several user groups (IOUG, ODTUG, UKOUG, COUG) and special interest groups (RAC SIG, Exadata SIG). After joining Oracle, my roles with these groups changed and I now try to provide technical content to enhance the programs for these groups whenever possible. I also enjoy creating and maintaining relationships with many other technologists in other companies including Oracle. I was an Oracle ACE Director, but “graduated” from the program once I became an Oracle employee.
