What is a tradition you have and why?

“On the month of September 3 of my siblings and I get together since our birthdays land on the month of September.”

If you could have dinner with anyone (dead or alive) who it would be, and why?

“I would have dinner with my grandpa from my mom’s side since I never got a chance to meet him. From what I heard he was a tall, gentleman who knew how it is to be a good father. Hmmm, but I would also have dinner with Nikola Tesla since he was the one that came up with the modern alternating current electricity supply system.”

What is a moment in your career and life you’re most proud of?

“When I used to work in IBM as a Manage I was able to pass a very difficult assessment. This assessment reviewed my management skills and if I was able to manage myself, others, and the company.
