Background

Summary

Why would you recommend me? I think the answer to that has to do with what I can bring into your company and that can be described in the following items: 1) Diversity and Creativity: Not only ethnic diversity but also diversity of thought and ideas, being open minded and having extreme curiosity has allowed me to be exposed and to embrace different ways of thinking in solving diverse set of problems in different realms ranging from doing system architecture design to adding the last line of a poem I am writing. So in this same context I can say that I consider myself a very creative person, that’s always thinking out of the box. 2) Team Player: I totally believe in synergy of groups of people in order to solve complex problems, in all my work experiences I strive to develope good rapport and professional connectivity very quick. In general I can say that I can connect to people very easily even out of the professional environment. 3) Knowledge and Experience: I have been in the IT industry since 1996, got my MSCS from USC in 99, I joined the San Diego workforce that same year. I have been involved with different technologies, ranging from Databases, embedded systems and all the way to Streaming Media servers and GIS systems, I also have experience in different industries such as Education services, Healthcare, Banking, Consulting, Internet Services, and Defense. 4) Leadership and enterpreneurship: I founded a small business (Internet Cafe) in the year 2005, and it is now profitable. I still oversee the normal operations of the business from time to time(is minimal now that everything is running smooth). I have been a technical lead in many opportunities where I am not only providing guidance to many junior engineers but also setting new directions on where the project is headed i.e. I have decent project management skills. Specialties: Software, Systems Analyst, Business Consultant, Project Management
