Speaker Bio:

I'm a Developer Advocate for Oracle focusing on the Oracle Cloud. I have 15 years experience as a full stack developer. I've been working with dynamic JVM languages and various JavaScript frameworks for my whole career - originally with ColdFusion and more recently Groovy/Grails on the server side. I have experience with everything from jQuery, ExtJS to all versions of Angular on the front end.

I'm obsessed with technology and programming and feel extremely lucky to get paid to do what I love every single day. When I'm not learning a new language, tool or framework I can usually be found volunteering at my local school working with the FLL Lego Robotics club, working on my barn automation project built with Raspberry Pi, various sensors with a web-based interface or making new friends at a conference.

I've been happily married to my lovely wife Rhonda for the past 16 years. We live in the beautiful Appalachian mountains of North Georgia with our 13-year-old daughter, 11-year-old son, 7 chickens, a potbelly pig, a dog, and a cat.
