Founded Kintec Corporation /DBA Kintec Consulting Services in 1998 to provide Oracle database-related consulting services.

Making the decision to simplify the business and focus solely on my own independent contract engagements, I've continued to provide clients with exceptional results from my expertise in Oracle database administration and application development.
