On May 20th 2008, I arrived at work and was surprised to see an Americas cup yacht as I looked out from my office window and posted pictures to this blog.  This weekend, almost 6 years later to the day, we had a new boat arrive to live on the lake and this time I was ready because preparations have been going on for a while.  I popped into the office on Saturday to see how it was looking and it was looking, well it was looking very big.  These multi hulled machines are amazing pieces engineering and seeing one so close is pretty cool.  Take a look below at the old boat and the new one viewed from the same office and you will get an idea of the difference in size.  More pictures to come soon…

I'm Senior Director in the Oracle Research and Development Organization, with close to 20 years working in various roles on the development of the Financial Management product suite.  Since the summer of 2016 my focus is exclusively on working with customers and longer-term design work, particularly around next-generation functional and technical architecture. My task is to figure out NOW what the financial management system of the next 3, 5 or more years should look like and start working toward it.  At the moment the majority of my time is spent working on Blockchain or Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT), leading the effort for all of SaaS applications.  I'm also interested in AI, Machine Learning and new UX and interaction paradigms such as chat bots. I started out in Oracle UK and found my way out to Oracle's Redwood Shores, California HQ in May 2000.  My previous role was product owner for Fusion Accounting Hub, General Ledger, Intercompany and Legal Entity products in Oracle Fusion Financials and eBusiness Suite General Ledger. I have also worked on EMEA Globalizations, Federal and Public Sector Financials, XML Payments and a variety of projects on other products down the years.
