"Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you." – Oprah Winfrey. My passion is to become a great business leader.

I am currently a Communications System Engineer at the Boeing, Space and Intelligence Systems, where I develop technical solutions and apply keen analytical skills to solve some of the toughest problems in the engineering field. During my seven years in one of the premier aerospace companies, I have consistently excelled on projects that directly impact the bottom line. Consequently, I was awarded the Boeing Exemplary Engineer honors fours years in a roll for embodying Boeing Leadership Attributes, which promotes teamwork, effective communication skills, and leadership.

Simultaneously, I have earned my MBA with focus in entrepreneurship and business strategy from Pepperdine University, Graziadio School of Business and Management. I have always aspired to direct my career path towards strategic business management in my pursuit to become a great leader. As a professional and as an MBA candidate, I have been able to find rewarding experiences as a multidimensional thinker and team leader.

I am engaged, and will marry my beautiful and multi-talented fiancé, Ijou, later this year. We enjoy good food and fine wine, great friends and supportive family, and if work and career permits - to travel the seven seas and the continents within.
