Change is probably one of the few constants you can expect in our industry (if that’s not a contradiction in terms!), and one of the biggest changes I have made in my career is taking place right now. I’m moving on – what that means for the future remains unclear at this point in time.

I’ve really enjoyed all the things I did over the past 22 years (well, most of the time anyway!), but for now it’s time for new challenges. Obviously, I’m interested in hearing about any positions out there that might suit my skills, so if you know of anything you can reach out to me at my Gmail address.

As far as the website is concerned, it will remain here for some time at least, but I won’t be posting any new blog posts nor posting on social media for some time while I sort out what the future holds.

Thanks for all the interactions, the friendships, the discussions, and most of all the camaraderie over the years. I’m off to put my feet up, for at least a little while. No doubt I’ll be back, but until then, cheers!


After 22 years of working at Oracle in just about every role except Marketing and Support, I am now working as a Senior Managed Services Consultant with Data Intensity, specializing in Oracle Database technology, High Availability and Disaster Recovery solutions. I am also a member of the OakTable Network, and have presented at RMOUG Training Days, Hotsos Symposia, Oracle OpenWorld conferences, and other user group events. I have co-authored the Expert Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c and Practical Oracle Database Appliance books published by Apress, and am one of the authors of the Building Database Clouds in Oracle Database 12c book published by Addison Wesley.
