About me

I live in Perth, West Australia. I work primarily as a database consultant, specialising in the Informix database engine, but I have a few other interests on the side. While this site was primarily intented to promote my consulting services , there is also a lot here about fishing!

Informix Database Consulting

I have been working with the Informix engine since 1990. I specialise in the following areas.
  • Performance Tuning
  • System Monitoring
  • Developing procedures for database administration
  • Disaster Recovery and Planning
  • High Availability Systems
  • Data Replication
  • Review applications to improve performance and stability
  • Database modeling, specifically to take advantage of Informix features
  • Rapid problem determination and resolution for mission critical production systems
  • Knowledge transfer and mentoring for on-site DBAs
  • Planning for database migrations, upgrades and hardware migrations etc
  • Capacity Planning & Analysis

This is the real reason behind all the other activities. It has been said that "work fills in the time between fishing trips". This is true for me. My favourite type of fishing is sport fishing and game fishing. To me these are the two most exiting types of fishing and involve travel to all parts of Australia chasing the elusive "big one". To find out more go here for a rundown of my fishing activities, as well as some pictures of my favourite catches.
