Wilfredo has been a helpful member of our forums for quite a while. He contributed an excellent article titled IT Project Management and Certifications right at the time we decided to consider adding project management certs to our site. In addition to his timely article, he also recently passed the PMP certification, so when he volunteered to moderate our PMP forum, we simply couldn't say no.
I am currently employed as a Sr. Business Analyst for Wyndham Worldwide. I also own my own IT consulting company JLS Technology USA. I have been working on computers since my father first brought home a Tandy 1000 and I gave up my dream of being a doctor to pursue a career in computers. I started out selling computers at Circuit City until I finally got my first IT break working my way up the ladder at Iron Mountain. I left Iron Mountain as a Field Systems Engineer for an opportunity as an Infrastructure Manager for a rapidly growing midsized business before my present opportunity. Along the way I went back to school for my degree in Information Technology and obtained many certifications. I was a student teacher at the University of Phoenix for a Windows Networking course. My key to certification success is to build a home lab, break it fix it, rinse and repeat. My ultimate goal is to become a CTO/CIO for a fortune 1000 company by the age of 35. My Hobbies include Church, Computers, and spending time with loved ones.
