I love to write and I love to speak to audiences, and I have a lot to share about the Bible, technology, academics, and parenting! I use this blog as an outlet for all that, both in Spanish and English.
As an American citizen of Caribbean heritage, I grew up partly in the Dominican Republic, my parents’ native country. Growing up Catholic there gave me a keen understanding of the virtues and faults of organized religion. I later rebelled against all its demands as a teen. Becoming "saved" in my thirties in the Baptist church, however, deepened my appreciation for Christianity. For over a decade now I've matured in the faith and crossed over into Pentecostal circles, and my greatest desire is to share all this evangelical experience I've acquired in the United States--particularly in Spanish with the profoundly religious Latin American community! Therefore you'll find my Spanish video messages about the grace of God here and on YouTube. I am now a firm believer in God's unmerited favor (grace!) over humanity, as personified by the Lord Jesus Christ.
Professionally, I have 20+ years of employment experience in Information Technology and six years of management in that field. I find myself often using Google.com and StackOverflow.com in order to keep up with my technical field's fast-paced growth--and I'm utterly grateful to all the hundreds of anonymous users and hackers who've helped me overcome one or another technical challenge in the past. So, with the articles I share via my Technology link on this page I'd like to give back to this wonderfully helpful online technical community.
My seven years of tutoring and teaching experience in subjects such as English, Math, and Computer Literacy, plus three years as a business college teacher of Sociology, Advertising, Marketing, Business Administration, and Office Technology... all of make me occasionally want to share my academic experience on this blog, too!
Finally my wife Carmen (a.k.a., “Kathy”) and I are raising three wonderfully rambunctious children of our own. She and I minister together, and both completed our degrees in Biblical studies at the International Victory Bible Institute. So inevitably we'll impart our knowledge of the Scriptures on our children and let them share some of that here when we can!
