In summary I am a Christian, husband, father of two adopted children (Guatemala and Korea), and a software developer immersed in Web technologies for almost 15 years. I have experience leading projects on various technology fronts, including Java, .NET (C#) and PHP, and I've used MySQL, SQL, PL/SQL and Oracle for relational database development. I'm currently immersed in Java EE and the Spring Framework, and I enjoy working most with the Java technology stack.
