Let's see, I started working with Oracle in 1982. It was Version 2 running on VAX/VMS. I've been working with it ever since. I have been a consultant for most of my career. I started an Oracle focused consulting company called Database Consultants in the late 80's (it was later renamed to ThinkSpark). In 2004 I left and co-founded another Oracle focused consulting firm call Enkitec (where I am still drawing a paycheck). I am most interested in internals and performance issues. I generally prefer to avoid the limelight but I did start a blog a couple of years ago (kerryosborne.oracle-guy.com) and have found that I enjoy writing about technical "stuff". I do speak occasionally and I'm finding that I enjoy that as well. I've never worked directly for Oracle and I'm not certified in anything (except Scuba).
