My life’s work has always been focused on people. As I started my career with a BA in Advertising and an MA in Group Psychology, I quickly developed an interest in human development and began to see technology as a driver for progress. I have since worked in the IT Services and Software industry for over 24 years, now focusing on the single goal of helping my worldwide customers accelerate their digital transformation by using Latin American talent. My background in psychology, and experience as a certified professional coach, have provided me with a unique understanding of the human potential and group management, allowing me to form strong, productive relationships with colleagues, customers, and partners.
I’m passionate about developing digital transformation journeys for my clients, always learning and growing from their feedback. In my spare time, I love to practice and teach CrossFit, spend time with my two daughters, and explore my passion for film and filmmaking.
Personal Motto: The key to success? Wake up asking “what can I give?” instead of “what can I get?”
I have always had a passion and drive for finance and IT. Since completing my MBA in Finance from San Francisco State University in 2001, I’ve committed to a life of learning. Since completing my MBA, I’ve completed certifications in subjects such as Software Project Management, Business Intelligence, and Digital Transformation. In the field, I’ve worked for over two decades in Financial IT Services and another seven years in IT Outsourcing. To continue my growth in the field, I work part-time teaching a Business Analytics Project Management course with a focus on Agile, modern data analysis, and data visualization tools. While currently based in beautiful San Jose, Costa Rica, I spent 15 years in the US (and a few months in France and Japan!). In addition to English and Spanish, I am proficient in Japanese, French, and Portuguese.
Throughout all my experiences as a student, teacher, traveler, and professional, it’s always been my greatest joy to build high-performing teams. I pride myself on my multicultural background and ability to manage successful teams from anywhere in the world. When I’m not working, you’ll find me riding my bike, hiking, swimming, or spending time outdoors with my wife and two daughters.
