Andrew Odewahn is a writer and software entrepreneur. With an MBA from New York University's Stern School of Business, he has an exceptional ability to find creative yet practical solutions to real-life business problems. The author of Oracle Web Applications (O'Reilly, 1999) and co-author of Oracle PL/SQL Workbook (O'Reilly, 2000), Andrew specializes in database technology. While not writing or designing software, he and his wife travel whenever they can. Their adventures include riding Lipizzaner stallions at a Slovenian casino, speeding down an alpine slide deep in the jungles of Vietnam, hiking (and riding the occasional ski lift!) across the Swiss Alps, hosteling in a Soviet-era… sanitarium, and circumnavigating New Zealand's "Mount Doom." They currently live in Maine.
