Dan suffers from Compulsive Programing Disorder which is believed to be linked to his balding. Having started his development career in the land of MySQL and PHP, he was only too happy to have stumbled upon APEX. Since then he’s dedicated his programming efforts to learning more about Oracle and web based technologies in general. His most recent addiction is developing plug-ins for APEX.
Dan is an Oracle Application Express Certified Expert, an Oracle PL/SQL Developer Certified Associate, as well as an Oracle ACE. In addition to his "day job", he is one of the top contributors to the APEX forum, maintains his own Oracle and APEX blog
, and is a regular presenter at various events and user group meetings including ODTUG Kaleidoscope and APEXposed, the New York, New England, and Suncoast Oracle User Groups.
When not programming, Dan may be found studying languages other than those used for development, notably Spanish. He’s also been sited at various venues dancing Salsa with his wife, Sonia, and even enjoying an occasional cigar, a time when Sonia prefers not to be around.
