Proud to be a founding member of Oracle New Zealand, Paul has spent over 25 years solving knotty database problems for large enterprise and public sector organisations, and businesses trying to pull meaningful information from a sea of data. He is a pragmatic DBA drawing on his technical expertise and knowledge of how the real business world works to provide consulting services that are truly appreciated by customers. Paul is an Oracle Certified Professional specialising in Oracle RDBMS, RAC, GoldenGate (replication & migration) and data analysis and has a B.Sc. in Computer Science from Massey University. In his spare time he indulges in Kayak fishing and although he has yet to encounter a really big shark he has met a few small ones.
