I am a Navico employee hired Sept 2020 Actively engaging CI/CD in embedded devices. My goal is to achieve the safe releasing of software every day after a PR is been approved PR.

My Soft Skills

I love creativity in solutions, the value of sketching and modelling systems to see different perspectives. To solve a problem identify it first is my approach.


To be honest I have never never never had a working day that feels the same. Working in the career that you choose should be fun! If an activity is fun and enjoyable a creative mind flows and thrives.


Ability to easily adapt true interest in people. Every person is a complete universe and all skills play a role in the achievement of goals for the team.

My Hard Skills

My involvement with systems includes: developing, installing, configuring, managing, monitoring, tweaking and even reporting bugs. Some of the systems i have worked with: SAP, SAG, TIBCO, Financial Back ends, stock exchange legacy systems, a Huge Telco environment, Enterprise Service Buses, Service Oriented Computing. My main expertise is Cloud Computing with AWS, but I have explored Google Cloud and enjoyed Azure...

A quote that has inspired me:

Formulating a problem is more essential than its solution, which may be merely a matter of math or experimental skill. Creative imagination raises new questions, new possibilities,a new angle to regard old problems... marks real advances in science.
Albert Einstein
Definetely love them. I started learning the basics with pseudo code to evolve my learning into basic C the GrandFather of languages. I went to develop a simple video game in Java to learn Object Oriented Programming concepts. Python came to my life to help solve automation problems. Javascript has been useful to me.
SQL=Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Informix.
I will be sorting this list from A-Z: Ansible, Grafana, Eclipse IDE, NetBeans IDE, VSCode, Jenkins, Puppet, Prometheus, Spinnaker
