- About Us
I had completed my masters degree in Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering in 2002.I am having more than 10 years experience in lecturing for the UG engineering students. In addition to that, I am having vast experience in mentoring the all level students to improve them personally and professionally.
I help people make career decisions so that they can find fulfillment at work. If you’re just embarking on your career, or making a career transition, I’ll be happy to help you overcome the fear and anxiety that usually accompany those stages in life, and give you direction on how to equip yourself for the exciting career journey ahead of you. 🙂
If you already know what you want to do, I’m happy to help with job searches, resume and cover letter writing, and interview preparation. As an L&D professional, I can also assist in the development of specific skills you’ll need to succeed in the career path of your choice.
You can learn a little about me and what I’m passionate about from my TEDx talk.
An Organisation Development and HR Director bridging Life Sciences, Financial and Professional Services, Industry and Manufacturing, as well as Non-Profit. Supporting and working with new business owners and experienced leaders to; set strategy and direction, design and develop organisations from start-up to scale-up, build skills and capability, enable high-performing teams and deliver projects during major transformation and change. I’m inspired by exchanging experience as a mentor and motivated by knowing that I’ve been able to benefit others and help them to succeed in work and life!
My methods rely heavily on science. I love to introduce concepts that are bleeding edge and perhaps unconventional, but are backed by data and studies. My mentees will walk away with reassurance that little changes can make tremendous impacts, and will be able to decide for themselves which little changes to make.
Two billion dollars worth of rapid growth sustained firm-wide by processes that facilitate constant improvement. Joining ACT Mortgage’s operation when it was smaller five years ago, I began spearheading a push to build the technology infrastructure which now supports over 6,000 clients and up to 700 concurrent users on an artificial intelligence platform. Where others saw routine, I perceived opportunity to inject new ideas, try alternatives to staid strategies and innovative the solutions that lead to achievement milestones. In fact, long before I became a senior Information Technology (IT) executive, I figured out that the key to my excelling in business was my passion for learning in the information systems area – a passion that inspired me to leave my native Colombia years ago to launch my IT career in the US.
My efforts helped to triple my company’s 2006 business volume, confirming the extent to which my continuous learning had increased my effectiveness. As a former member of the Executive MBA program at the University of Miami, I embraced new ways of thinking about complex problems and discovered, while working with my professors, that I possessed an advanced ability to turn technology concepts into commercially viable processes. For instance, I used Six Sigma methodologies as a foundation to not only increase departmental and revenue-generating efficiency, but also engineer the shift from our earlier architecture to a 24/7 web-based ERP platform – readying the company to accommodate its unprecedented expansion. Thus, continuous learning had, on academic, personal and professional levels, prepared me to achieve a few milestones several years ahead of schedule.

Currently I am working as a software engineer at The Resource Group (TRG), one of leading IT companies worldwide. Previously, I have had the privilege to be a part of CureMD, Microsoft and Facebook.
I have worked on a variety of different platforms and technologies. Although hardcore development is my major domain, my skills are not restricted to it, rather I have quite some experience in marketing and blogging as well. Out of a vast array of available fields, my preference is developing and working on technologies that have a significant impact on human life and are continually reshaping our future. I aspire to be a part of the revolutionary advancements in the field of computer science in the near future to come.
Through this platform I hope that I am able to give back to the community and help change lives for the better.
Human will is a very powerful force. It shapes our reality and determines our future. There is no problem that is too great for a determined person. However, there is usually more than one solution to a problem. Will, without patience, cool hard logic and adaptive skills would be noting more than a mere wish to act. Patience without the knowledge, sound reason and a will to act is nothing more than waiting for the things to happen. Not to mention that there are problems in life that are beyond our reach, or are simply unsolvable. It is up to us to decide whether we are going to learn something from such problems or not.
We, the humans, are curious creatures. We want to learn, to grow. If you believe that you and I could do so together, know that I believe it too. I am not offering solutions to your problems, I am offering tools that will help you to find them by yourself.
