I live in Oslo, Norway, where I work as a consultant for SYSCO AS. My focus has been the Oracle database, helping developers and end-users. Optimisation aka tuning has been of particular interest. Recently Kafka and other open source projects take a lot of my time. The Oracle Community is important to me, because of all the friends I have met on Twitter and IRL on conferences. The help I have got from the Oracle Community is priceless. My kind of networking involves beers and other people more than routers and switches.
