Native from Puerto Rico, been in Arizona since 1997. I also lived in the Pacific Northwest and New Hampshire.

I have over 26 years of experience working with technology, 21 of those with Intel and 5 with StorageTek. I worked across different industries as part of my jobs and this experience expanded my knowledge far beyond what I learned in college. I am an avid DIY of many sort of things; I am a problem solver.

My hobbies include arts, dancing, and outdoor activities such as running, hiking, backpacking among others.
