About Me

I’m a consultant on a mission

My name is Richard Koranteng, a Washington DC based database professional on a mission to help companies gain maximum value from their Oracle database investments.

I write my technical stuff on this site – mainly to help others that are looking for solutions as well as for my own future reference.

I have an obsession with data management

I enjoy designing scalable, secure, highly available Oracle database systems that handle large amounts of data in a reliable way. There’s something very satisfying about being able to say, “A few terabytes? No problem”. I also enjoy automating routine and complex database tasks.

I love helping others achieve their goals

I know the frustration that aspiring tech professionals face when trying to learn new platforms, understand technology implementation, and land their first IT job. I ran into those same hurdles and frustration – uninformed, misinformed, and a nervous wreck. So I’ve made it my mission to help aspiring tech professional navigate the technology landscape via training and career coaching/advice.

During my free time

Here are some of the things that I like to do in my free time:

  • Working out in the gym
  • Coaching my sons on their soccer skills
  • Playing golf
  • Reading and listening to audio books
  • Trying new restaurants with my wife
  • Mucking around with new technology stacks that peek my curiosity
