Full Biography

After studying at Griffith University in a Unix/C environment, I started my working life in the mainframe space, doing Cobol programming on Unisys OS-1100 machines for the Queensland Government.  Shortly after I moved into VMS administration, then Unix, Ingres DBA, and eventually Oracle DBA.  I've stuck with Oracle for over 15 years now, with a mix of PostgreSQL, and various Unix flavours.

My work has taken me around the world from Australia, to Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore, London, USA, and a few more stops in-between.

When I'm not working on Databases I'll be more than happy to talk your ear off about Motorsports, and I'm a keen competitor in the FunCup series.

I'll always try to give you the best advice possible, but I won't be held responsible for the results of using anything I post on Experts Exchange. Everything should be tested on a non-production environment first to ensure that nothing disastrous will happen.
