Profile Activity

As early as college I started working on several network related projects. My very first hands-on experience was during the installation, configuration and maintenance of the Cisco Network Academy in Universidad de Colima back in 2003. Since then I fell in love with this specialization and I turned my energy and efforts to point my career in networks.

After graduation I started working in Softtek where I had the chance to be the project leader of a consultancy infrastructure project for GE Rail. I've gained valuable experience with Cisco network devices, network troubleshooting and monitoring. I also had my first experience leading and managing people.

During my time there I managed to take the project from CMMi level 1 to 5 in a year by creating and documenting processes.

Today I work at Stryker as a Network Analyst and Desktop Support. I am in charge of maintaining, configuring and troubleshooting the network for Latin America region. I also, recommend, buy and configure network equipment across the region and manage, develop and document projects of improvements, changes or expansions of the network.

As a next step in my career I'm looking for an opportunity to work for or lead a team dedicated to Service Provider or large enterprise networks. I'm currently studying for my CCIP certification which I expect to complete in the coming months.
