Please describe your relevant analytical skills. I run the security team for a major tech company campus. I work closely with many employees, most of which are Austin residences and help them solve problems.
Please describe your ability to be impartial. As a director of security I am often faced with heated parties arguing about several issues. I have learned to be calm and mediate discussions between multiple people who feel unsafe or threatened.
Please describe your appreciation for the City of Austin's diverse demographics and geography. I am a son of a mexican immigrant and live in one of the most diverse neighborhoods in east Austin, because I love it feel at home here. And while the hill country is beautiful I think East Austin with its blackland prairie terrain make for amazing grasslands and trees.
Please provide your employment history. Director of Application Security - NCC Group
