Performed extensive performance tuning, both in the query development and in
adding new indexes and/or partitioning to the tables. Maintained and enhanced the

(Sagent is a data warehousing tool similar to Informatica). Improved and
streamlined the ETL process to make it more reliable and efficient, developed many
reports, and played a lead role in the migration to a new server and developing the
ETL routines for the addition of data from an additional source database
Developed reports incorporating data from other sources such as Haemonetics,
LifeTrak, and SalesLogix.
Also developed several mission-critical Visual Basic applications and modified or
enhanced a number of Oracle Financials reports (both Oracle Reports and
Discoverer reports), and had some training in Crystal reports.
Took three Oracle exams for Associate Developer certification.
Skills Used: Informatica PowerCenter 9.5.1, Oracle 9i through 12, SQL Server 2000

Software Developer II
3/2001 - 11/2002 The Apollo Group, Phoenix, AZ
Enhanced and/or debugged numerous Pro*C programs, Oracle Forms, packages,
procedures, and scripts for the OSIRIS and Campus Tracking applications,
including a number of major projects.
Was solely responsible for the development of the Duplicate Person form for the
Campus Tracking program, a highly complex form that facilitates the correction and
consolidation of multiple entries for the same person, a task that was previously
very daunting to perform manually due to the database integrity constraints
Also was responsible for the DS Attendance via the Web project, the Employer
Marketing project, the Faculty Acknowledgement package, web_sql_pkg, and
2. many others.
Was also responsible for maintaining the SQL Impact repository used to determine
the impact of planned table and column changes.Skills Used: Oracle 8i and 9i (on
Solaris platforms), Forms 5.0 and 6i, PL/SQL, Pro*C, TOAD, PL/SQL Developer,
SQL*Plus, SQL Impact, Microsoft Visio (for database diagramming)
12/1999 - 2/2001 Direct Marketing Services, Scottsdale, AZ
Developed several complex Oracle Forms-based applications and associated
stored procedures. Also developed procedures and forms to produce reports in the
form of .csv(comma-delimited text) files and to generate other data files to transmit
to the client. Some of these are very complex reports and summaries requiring
multiple packages, procedures, and summary tables.
Also developed a number of other related forms to view and/or update the data
created by the main applications, as well as SQL*Loader scripts and cron-
automated unix scripts to load the daily flat files into the tables. Some of the Forms
applications also include Oracle reports allowing the operators to view or print the
data they have entered.
Skills Used: Oracle 8 (on an AIX platform); Forms 5.0; Reports 3.0; PL/SQL,
SQL*Plus; SQL Navigator Pro, TOAD
8/1997 - 11/1999 NDC Health Information Services, Phoenix, AZ
Played a significant role in the development and maintenance of multiple versions
of the Prescription Performance Program (P3) for several major clients. This
entailed developing packaged procedures to process very large amounts of data
from pharmacies nationwide on a monthly basis. Performance tuning was a critical
aspect of the project.
Other responsibilities included training and mentoring new employees, including
some management personnel, testing and modifying the programs for Y2K
compliance, and assisting in the implementation of Oracle Reports in batch mode
on the Sequent and Sun Unix servers.
One of the more significant challenges was the development of the distribution
procedures that move data downloaded from the mainframe into the monthly
shared repository tables used by all of the P3 programs (60 to 100 million rows per
Skills Used: Oracle 7.3 and 8; PL/SQL, SQL*Plus; Developer 2000 (Reports 2.5
11/1996 - 8/1997 Maritz, Fenton, MO
Developed custom reports and other enhancements for Oracle Financials (AP, AR,
HR, and GL) and assisted in the upgrade from version 10.4 to version 10.6 and
later to 10.7.
Developed a number of reports and PL/SQL scripts, a few SQL*Loader scripts, and
two Oracle forms, one to allow users to e-mail the report files created when reports
are printed and one to validate and transfer data into the Project Accounting
Actively participated in developing the work plan for the Oracle v10.6 upgrade. Also
tracked down and corrected several serious database errors resulting from a bad
sector on the production server's hard drive.
Skills Used: Oracle Financials 10.4, 10.6, and 10.7 (AP, AR, PO, GL, and HR);

3. Senior Analyst
10/1993 - 11/1996 Applied Engineering and Planning Corporation (AEPCO), St. Louis,
Acted as a Senior Analyst at the U.S. Army's Aviation and Troop Command
(ATCOM), developing and maintaining database applications in support of the
Apache, Depot, Longbow and Maintenance Work Order (MWO) contracts.
Worked primarily with Oracle 7 in an HP-UNIX/X-Windows environment and
occasionally using CA-Clipper 5.2 to develop and support programs used at
ATCOM, the Corpus Christi Army Depot, Fort Hood in Killeen, TX, Hunter AAF in
Savannah, GA, and numerous other locations.
Last principal project was a new Oracle 7 application which integrates portions of
DAPOP (the Depot Automated Pilot Overhaul Program, a Clipper application which
he developed) with data and reports from the M&O (Maintenance and Overhaul)
programs, resulting in a program with more widespread network accessibility and
more capabilities to serve a broader range of users. This was a very extensive
application, composed of numerous forms and reports, along with several complex
PL/SQL scripts for database updates. Some of these scripts are fully automated,
running at the required times with no user intervention needed.
Served as a team leader during the development of the MWO program, extensively
modified several Clipper applications for the MWO section, and developed a
number of smaller programs to produce various cost analysis reports.Was solely
responsible for the development of numerous Clipper and dBASE programs, some
Primary project was the Depot Automated Pilot Overhaul Program (DAPOP), in use
at ATCOM, at the Corpus Christi Army Depot in Texas, and at DESCOM in
Pennsylvania. DAPOP was an extensive network-compatible Clipper application
incorporating data from a number of ATCOM sources, including the Commodity
Command Standard system (CCSS), the Maintenance Data Management System
(MDMS), Depot Maintenance Work Requirements (DMWRs), and the Federal
Logistics system (Fedlog), among others. It makes this information more easily
accessible and summarizes overhaul requirements and transition plans in the form
of bar charts and user-definable custom tailored reports.
Skills Used: Oracle 7; Forms 3.0 and 4.0; Reports 1.0 and 2.0; PL/SQL; SQL*Plus;
Clipper (5.1 and 5.2); dBASE IV
10/1989 - 10/1993 DynCorp, St. Louis, MO
Developed the original Clipper version of DAPOP (described above) during this
time. Also maintained the LAN for the Depot Maintenance Plant Equipment
Another important program that was developed during this time is the 2410 data
entry program. Operators enter data from 2410s, which are forms used to report
overhauls. Wherever possible, these entries are checked for errors or duplications
during entry. The files were then copied from the PCs to the Directorate for
Maintenance's Sperry mini computer, where they were rechecked and incorporated
into the master 2410 database. This program has played a significant role in
reducing the data error rate from its previous level of 13 to 18% to approximately
