Chief Architect - Oracle Blockchain Platform

I'm currently the Chief Architect for the the Oracle Blockchain Platform that was released in July 2018. My main areas of focus are on security, privacy, confidentiality, performance, and scalability.

I'm also the Chief Architect for Tuxedo in the Oracle Fusion Middleware development organization. I'm responsible for defining the technical strategy and direction for the Tuxedo product family, including Oracle Tuxedo, Oracle Tuxedo Jolt, Oracle Tuxedo System and Application Monitor, Oracle Services Architecture Leveraging Tuxedo, Oracle Tuxedo Mainframe Adapter, Oracle Tuxedo Message Queue, and Oracle Message Queue.

Prior to being acquired by Oracle, I was Chief Architect for BEA Tuxedo at BEA Systems, Inc. While at BEA Systems, I was responsible for defining the technical strategy and direction for the Tuxedo product family. I developed the Tuxedo Control for WebLogic Workshop that greatly simplified the usage of Tuxedo services from Workshop based applications. I also received two patents for methods allowing design patterns in a UML modeling tool to control the generation of software artifacts.

During my more than 40 years of software architecture and development experience, I have worked on a wide range of software systems and technology. At Science Applications International I worked on microcoded plasma display systems and command, control, and communication systems for naval applications. As a senior software consultant at Digital Equipment Corporation, I was the New York Area Regional Tools Consultant and also helped develop a multi-language multi-threaded distributed object oriented runtime environment with concurrent garbage collection.
