Born in Ålesund, Norway in 1970, I completed my IT degree in Oslo at NHI (Norges Høyskole for Informasjonsteknologi) in 1994. Working with Oracle Technologies has brought me around the world and I have worked/lived in countries like South Africa, Italy, Netherlands, Thailand, Malaysia, Mexico, the US and more.
In 2004 I settled down in Malaga, Spain after years living out of 2 suitcases and in 2010 I founded Oracle Tuning Guy SL to take advantage of my special career experiences in a small niche market. In 2013 we moved into our new office in our own IT Technology Park here in Malaga – the PTA.
Having spent close to 10 years working as part of infrastructure operations in one of the biggest outsourcing deals in history, I decided to start Novoshore Europe SL in 2013 – a nearshoring company, serving customers and partner in the European time zone ±1-2 hours with ITSM and Development services. Follow the link and have a look at what we do in Novoshore.
After finishing my IT degree, I started my first IT job in Siemens Nixdorf in Oslo, Norway – as a systems consultant working mainly with Oracle and a document management system called DocuLive. My work quickly brought me challenges with system performance both internally and on customer sites. From here on, my career took off with Oracle technologies, database administration, performance analysis, infrastructure, capacity management and IT operations in general. Performance analysis and tuning things quickly became my specialties.
25 years later and I am still loving hands-on solving performance issues, mentoring, training, conference-speaking and helping customers run their database workloads as fast as possible. Throughout the years, I have helped customers like Canon Europe, DirectTV Latin America, Siemens, Telenor and the last 10 years supported Shell and T-Systems with their operational issues.
We are passionate technology people and love a challenge. Whether it is a slow report or a generally slow system, we solve it with passion and a guarantee. Help us feed our passion and we will make you happy!
