I started out as a research scientist and then drifted into IT.
These days I'm the Technical Director of Java & GraalVM product marketing at Oracle with over twenty years of experience in the technology industry and a lot less hair.
I joined Oracle when they acquired Thor Technology in 2005. I intended to stay for six months and I'm still here. I'm currently focused on helping Oracle's customers and partners adopt a cloud-native approach to Java development.
Outside of work I enjoy cycling, cooking and the countryside. I contribute to a number of open source projects, a former organizer of the DevEast conference in the UK and a member of the Ipswich & Suffolk Technology Network (ISTN).
