I have been working in IT for the past 19 years for both public & private sectors, seizing valuable opportunities to learn directly from Subject Matter Experts on different technologies.

I have proven expertise in team leadership, project management, architecture, implementation, and troubleshooting of IT services supporting core business processes. I am always looking to add value by automating processes and reusing already established concepts (like building blocks) to advance current projects towards their goals. Iteration of this practice makes it the perfect learning method for everyone in the team, also moving them forward in their careers and lives, which is the most rewarding token a leader can expect.

I have a BS degree in IT Management from UADE and PMI training from UTN SCEU.

Interested in: Project Management. Leadership. ITIL processes. Audit & Security Compliance. Performance tuning. On-Premises/Hybrid/(Multi) Cloud-based IT Services. Scripting & automation. DevOps. CI/CD. IT Security.
