From 1994 to 1995 I held two technical/computer-related jobs as well as two unrelated jobs.
A native Californian, I take a personal interest in the environment and its protection. Yet I am interested in a variety of subject matters such as aerospace, bioscience and electro-mechanical innovations. I keep up an active lifestyle and enjoy music, dancing, art, film and photography and am constantly seeking new ways to challenge myself. I love to share new experiences with my wife and daughter.
