San Jose State University
Since I was about 6 years I have been working with PCs for fun and today I still do with various computer subjects, always wanting to try something new from playing with new programming/scripting languages like currently reading on iPhone Dev, configuring IDS systems on personal server to just trying out the newest social website.Outside of computers history has been always my strong subject, with politics being my favorite. And when I want to get away from the tech world all together, my backward Harley Davidson is my escape, but that would be an lie as its EFI and I have the turning software that allows me to reprogram is ECU on the fly.
I have experience working at both small companies (a growing Real Estate company and consulting with up and coming business) and larger Defense companies (Lockheed Martin, a leader in US Defense development).An expert in System Admin and Testing, done work from providing server deployment to helping come up with test requirements for complex systems. Always on the look out for something to challenge himself and try something new
