I am CompTIA Security+ and Oracle Certified Professional database administrator with over twenty five years of professional experience in both commercial and military computing environments. Over the years I have published and presented white papers and scripts on a variety of performance tuning and security subjects.
Highlights of my career include contributing content and scripts to the Defense Information Systems Agency’s first Database Security Technical Implementation Guide, presentation of papers on real-time auditing and security monitoring techniques using Oracle Enterprise Manager at the Independent Oracle Users Group (IOUG) annual conference, and participation as a network defender in the Air Force’s “Black Demon” cyber defense exercise.
My scripts and award-winning white papers on security and system monitoring have been published on the Oracle Magazine Interactive Web Site, the IOUG’s “Library of Oracle Knowledge”, the Sun Microsystems “Big Admin” portal, the Oracle Communities portal, and the CSC Leading Edge Forum.
After spending fifteen years administering databases and related infrastructure for one of the only successful enterprise business systems in the Department of Defense, I am now a lead technologist for a global consulting firm.
