I've always had an interest in Telecommunications and Computers specifically.
My father was in a Data Processing MOS in the Marine Corp back when computers filled whole rooms and could do less than a simple digital watches can today.
These interests eventually lead me to the TCOM program at Skyline College, San Bruno. There I have a Certificate in Telecommunications Technology. In my civilian careers, I have worked as a Project Manager for a Voice and Data systems Service company and as a Lead Technical Support Engineer for a Workforce Management Solutions company in Silicon Valley.
