My first job was teaching Logo, Math and Robot Logic when I was 15, since then I have worked in almost every role in the IT Industry from Lab Assistant to Technical Marketing Manager, from LISP and Prolog developer to High Availability Presales Engineer from Solaris Instructor to Software Consultant.
I am an accidental DBA and a professional Solaris guru, or was.... I'm an OpenSource proponent and I've been known for spending too much time in the Clouds, hey but I'm a Cloud Architect.
I have more than 25 years of experience on Product Development, Management and Marketing, these jobs have taking me around the world and have shaped my view of the industry. During those years I've worked from Startups that didn't make it beyond the second round of investment to large corporations like Digital, Sun, Oracle and now EMC.
I majored in Cybernetics and Computer Systems Engineering at La Salle University in Mexico City, then I got my MBA from SFSU with focus on Hi-Tech Marketing.
I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, very close to Oracle HQ with my wife and 3 kids.
In my spare time I enjoy Music (the heavier the better, Up the Irons!) and coaching Little League and Jr Soccer.
