About Roy

I learned Oracle Forms at university while Studying for Systems Engineer, within Forms and Reports I also learned SQL and PL/SQL, as soon as I finished that course I got Job as Y2K Consultant in year 1998, my role there was to review date masks and conversions for several companies systems, either on Forms, Reports and DB Stored Procedures.

Later on I worked on several companies as Systems Analyst and Programmer, focused on develop for Financial systems with Oracle Forms Developer and Reports, based on end users requirements, as Senior Technical Consultant got into some projects where traveled and used both Consulting and PL/SQL Developing skills and additionally started to take care of non-prod DBs Install, patching, upgrading, export and import.

Finally after 7 years doing Analyst and Developer role I changed my career path to Database Administrator, then within the time escalated from Junior to Senior (DTS) role and furthermore to Tower Delivery Lead (a combined Consultant Role for Clorox Client in particular), after 5 years then I decided to remain technical and work for a very strong DB Consulting Company, The Pythian Group, where I'm still working for (since 2011), having here a role as Oracle Database Consultant (with exception of couple of years when did Acting Team Manager role).

Since couple of years ago started to collaborate more with the community, also have participated as Speaker in Oracle OTN Tour in Costa Rica and Mexico. Present time 2017 I got the honor to be accepted in Oracle ACE program.
I'm very glad to be Oracle Pro to collaborate as much as I can...
