EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND AND COMMUNITY
BS in Mathematics, Computer Science and Systems Design (emphasis in Systems Design) from the University of Texas at San Antonio graduating Magna Cum Laude in Dec '85. Coursework (18 hours) toward Master's of Science in Computer Science at University of Houston (86-90) in Software Engineering learning Eiffel and C++, reading numerous technical books, periodicals, trade journals and web research to stay current on my interests in software development technology, Quality Assurance and Software Engineering. HTML 1 & 2 at OLLU (1998), LinuxWorld seminars (San Jose 1999) and Linux Boot Camp at GTC 2000. Volunteered with Alamo PC Organization (between 1983-85), San Antonio Internet access & education pioneer SALSA.NET (1994-97) and with San Antonio Texas Linux Users Group (SATLUG) (1998-2003) teaching others about Linux, performing Linux installs, serving as a club officer, coach and mentor of the open source community spirit.
