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.

Performed as a central contributor to push the project through to around a 90% completion. This milestone occasion began as an internship contract that transitioned into a contract extension where I could apply what I learned by:
ASSOCIATE PROJECT MANAGER, WESTOWER COMMUNICATIONS

Some of my responsibilities included researching, identifying, coordinating, and implementing field tasks for completion to meet industry standards for compliance.
INTERNAL PROJECT MANAGEMENT/INSTALLATION TECHNICIAN, WIRELESSWERKS
It was a landmark adventure with WirelessWerks to experience the practical application of orchestrating, organizing, configuring and integrating wireless communication equipment during upgrades, installations, and the decommissioning of Global System for Mobile (GSM) and Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) network nodes through command line interfaces (CLI) and graphical user interfaces (GUI) using various TL1 commands. Additionally, I used various propriety mobile vendor programming languages to achieve the project goals. I transitioned into being responsible for coordinating team deployment while offering interim collaboration solutions using Google Apps and cloud solutions to solve project challenges as the organization analyzed total cost of ownership for a permanent collaboration and workforce management tool for Verizon Wireless project implementation and equipment integration.
NETWORK ENGINEER, AT&T MOBILITY

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.
