Born in Vigo, Spain ( 1948 ), I am 53 years old. I
was a precocious student who earned an Associate Degree in
Industrial Engineering ( Summa-Cum Laude ) at age 17. Immediately
after started to work for a car-manufacturer ( Citroën-Peugeot
Hispania S.A ). Some years later (1974) I earned an Electrical
Engineering Degree ( Magna Cum Laude ) from the University of Puerto Rico,
Mayagüez. In 1985 I did finish MBA studies with a high GPA ( concentration
Accounting ), at the Inter American University, Cagüas,
PR. In 1993 I received a Master of Telecommunications Degree from
the University of Colorado, Boulder. I do also have about one third of
the academic requirements for a Ph.D. in Computer Sciences (
Colorado State, Fort Collins, CO ). I had to abandon this program due to financial

"Scientific Software" in 1978 (

Science Software International" ( ASSI Inc., Two Rivers,
Manitowoc, WI ) in 1991. Both operations were dedicated to
the development of database engines, as well as database
applications for farm operations (dairy herd control).
Oracle and Microsoft had
been founded one year earlier, and went public in the mid 80's.
My ventures -both- had to be closed down for lack of venture capital.

software development, first because I like it, and second because it has
been rewarding. For that reason, I have posted -on some Internet
sites- another more "skewed"
Résumé (meaning: one that only emphasizes the "software
development" aspect of my career). On that
resume I require a lesser minimum-salary, for what are supposed
to be less demanding responsibilities. Moreover, let us not
forget that in this area of technology I have to compete with recent
graduates (sporting the latest software fads, techno-jargon, and latest

and abilities more effectively. Modesty aside, I can say that I have
absorbed a wide
spectrum of knowledge, since that first day of professional
work at Citroën-Peugeot Hispania S.A.,

Engineer for the last 27+ years, and as such I have held managerial positions in manufacturing, field
installations and testing, international sales, financial analysis,
