For more than 35 years my professional career took me from digital electronics,
programming and system development, computer science and information technology,
telecommunications and large scale internetworking, engineering executive
management, and research & development.
I've been always using and promoting technology in the private and public sector,
from small startup companies to large corporations, and as a technical consultant
for international organizations such as the
United Nations and the
Organization of American States.
In the mid-eighties I was involved in the
early steps of
Internet in Argentina, establishing the first international connection

In the mid-nineties while in Princeton, New Jersey, I helped to complete the transition
of the old NSFNet to the private sector, particularly with JVNCNet regional network, later
operated by Global Enterprise Services (GES) becoming Director of Engineering & Operations.
GES was later acquired by VERIO, Inc. which performed 54 ISP and webhosting providers
in about three years, I assisted in the technical due diligence and integration of acquired
companies becoming VP of Engineering. Later VERIO got acquired by NTT (Nippon Telegraph and Telephone)
and I moved to work directly with the CTO in technology R&D, datacenter network arhitecture
design, networking equipment selection, purchase and service contracts negotiations, etc.
I also participated in the design of NTT's global VPN services and SLA infrastructure.
During the past 16 years, since we moved with the family to Texas, I've been doing research
and development of embedded microcontroller applications, working as an independent consultant/contractor
providing services and selling some products through
About my hobbies, besides Electronics, I've been having fun with some retrocomputing
projects with old Personal Computers such as the
HP Series 80 family of Personal Computers, I collect old logic and protocol
analyzers, and microprocessor development kits.
I continue developing
networked stuff, and doing research in protocols for energy management,
low power wireless sensor networks, Internet of Things and cloud computing
For more than eight years I worked as Principal Engineer with
Serious Integrated, Inc., developing very cool technologies for Human Machine Interface (MHI,) advanced industrial
communications modules and other embedded applications primarly Renesas processors.
I'm currently back as an Independent Freelance Consultant doing business as
LJCV Electronics doing R&D on Embedded Systems with particular focus on Internet of Things (IoT) applications.

I'm involved with, forums and mailing lists where I normally "hang out".
I currently live in
San Antonio, Texas with my beautiful wife
Lorena and my
two lovely kids Christian and Veronica.
Since October 2018 I'm assisting the San Antonio Museum of Science and Technology (SAMSAT) to execute on their mission
to be the source of inspiration for young minds through the exploration of the past, present and future of Science,
Technology, Engineering and Math. I recently joined its Board of Directors.
