I am a father, husband, brother, friend, avid reader, struggling author, workaholic, night-owl, SF Giants fan, music lover, software engineer, and sometimes blogger.
I am blessed with my beautiful wife Diana that is as beautiful as she is smart (and she’s brilliant), three children, satisfying work, a beautiful home in the great community of Sunnyvale, California, just about everything I ever wanted and a lot of things I didn’t know I needed. The Symantec Corporation subsidizes my lavish lifestyle. In exchange, I help write software for their web security team.
My wife Diana is a citizen of the great nation of Mexico and a legal immigrant to these United States. She is a translator, an English teacher, and has devoted a lot of her time as a volunteer to help other recent immigrants become happy and productive members of this great nation.
I’m proud of my three kids, Czarina, William and Brooklyn, and happy that they are all students attending college at Foothill-De Anza Community Colleges. I’m a graduate of the University of California Berkeley. But De Anza will always be my alma mater.
