Strong Analytic core

My engineering background provided the rigor and skills required to take balanced decisions under pressure.

Effective Negotiator

As a consultant I'm faced with multi-party negotiations often.  I have brokered important joint ventures, alliances and major technology shifts while maintaining an "exquisite balance".

Technology Space

I have adopted technology into each step of my career.  I have effectively managed to abstract the best practices across different fields and be able to design and implement creative solutions.  These solutions have resulted in savings of millions of dollars.


To obtain a key position in a multinational corporation that utilizes the achievements, skills, strategic thinking and leadership abilities that enable me to consistently exceed earnings goals under less than ideal economic conditions.
