Biography

I have been consulting on data warehouse and business intelligence projects as BI team lead, solution architect, business analyst, data modeller, and various other roles since 1990. As my employer is a product-independent service provider, this has been done on a wide variety of technologies, mostly in telecommunications, insurance, retail and banking industries. I have presented papers at many conferences and user groups, amongst others SAS Forum (Geneva), Mimer conference (London), DB User Groups (Nice and Sydney) and CA World and Software Development conferences (USA). I was a contributing editor to DBMS Magazine for three years and have written feature articles for numerous international IT journals. I hold a M.Sc degree (cum laude) on distributed databases, and have attended various Ralph Kimball and TDWI workshops and courses. In March 2011 we relocated from Cape Town, South Africa to Melbourne, Australia.
