George Bernard Shaw once said, “Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” I believe life is a combination of finding, designing, and redesigning ourselves. I also believe that I must continue designing and creating myself through multifaceted active participation with a business analytics approach that is iterative to be an effective and useful social contributor.
PIERCE COLLEGE, PUYALLUP WA, DATABASE ADMINISTRATION
My college journey from 2013-2016 gave me the opportunity to redesign myself by enhancing my business analysis skills learned through practical application while capitalizing on opportunities to hone my soft skills for team collaboration and cross-functional group participation.
INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY SPECIALIST, STATE OF WASHINGTON DEPARTMENT OF ENTERPRISE SERVICES
My contribution to the Department of Enterprise Services was a pinnacle opportunity of the educational journey that augmented my career’s anecdotal observations. This milestone occasion began as an internship contract that transitioned into an extension where I could apply what I learned by:
ASSOCIATE PROJECT MANAGER, WESTOWER COMMUNICATIONS
During my eventful participation in this organization, I engaged in a telecommunication fulfillment effort to anticipate requirements for power redundancy that was necessary for equipment integrations and client business continuity goals. Some of my responsibilities included researching, analyzing, coordinating, and implementing field tasks for completion to meet industry standards for federal compliance.
INTERNAL PROJECT MANAGEMENT/INSTALLATION TECHNICIAN, WIRELESSWERKS
It was a landmark adventure with WirelessWerks to experience the practical application of translating team and client requirements, analyzing the needs and organizing them while configuring and integrating wireless communication equipment during upgrades, installations, and decommissioning of Global System for Mobile (GSM) and Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) network nodes.
NETWORK ENGINEER, AT&T MOBILITY
AT&T was a six-year apex career experience where I learned how to:
I was transitioned to a higher-level functioning group to assist with network operation goals that involved analyzing the business needs, translating the requirements of meantime ticket resolutions as the network operations team modified their processes and procedures in trouble ticket responses.
In all, my experience with AT&T totaled around 15 years of experience as a full-time and contracted network engineer completing multiple projects using business analysis skills to anticipate, organize, translate, verify, and manage requirements for system operation, maintenance, and control.
As a relentless student with a hunger for learning, I have a knack for taking existing platforms and applications and using code to integrate them to help unify cross-functional group information exchange.
Below is a clickable button that will take you to a site called thebrain.com. The Brain is a collaborative, interactive, and engaging versatile platform that takes mind mapping to a new level with a simple drag and drop interface. It can be modified on the fly with the web interface or it can be configured in more detail from a local workstation application tool.
I am not affiliated with this organization other than an avid customer who is very excited about their innovation. Their platform was discovered during my college journey when I needed a simple method beyond OneNote to organize, categorize, and share (if I want to). Since my first year in college, several brains have been created. The button below was created as an example of the power it has to offer.
