I began my career as a Systems Programmer, working on operating systems, then compilers, then utilities, and then applications
development. I have worked in several industries and created solutions for focused needs and for enterprise management. I worked
with customers (users) to understand their perspective and their needs, and with executives to understand their objectives.
