bulletExcellent academic background and experience in Telecommunications.

bulletSoftware Development has been my "core" knowledge. Started in the late 70's, founded two companies, and still working on it. Databases, Internet, eCommerce. Strong in C++ and Java (Visual J++) also ODBC, JDBC, and SQL. Wrote many "stored procedures" for Oracle server.

bulletOverseas, the demand for coin-operated payphones is decreasing. Card-operated phones are becoming the norm.  Not all, but many of ITC's high-volume exportable-products focus on coin-operated phones.
bulletTo make matters worse, capital-spending in Telecom is way down all over the world.  In my current VP position compensation -for the most part- is based on commission.
bulletI operate from small office near Miami.  ITC's Software Development Team is in rural New London, MN.  I lived in St. Cloud, MN, when I worked up there.  I would like to avoid living on isolated, winter-frozen, rural towns.

bulletAssignments in Software Development (Java, Visual J++, Visual C++, JDBC , COM , or Client/Server Database projects -preferably ORACLE), either as full-time permanent employee or as  freelance developer under contract.
bulletI would also be open to a Plant Managerial positions, in Manufacturing of Telecommunications equipment, Testing, or Sales (International)  of electronic systems.
bulletDomestic travel shall not exceed 30% (International 15%).  However, long-term assignment overseas with family relocation ( wife and 3-year old daughter) could be of my interest (especially in Western Europe or Latin America).  I grew up in a fishing town.  I like Florida, and would try to stay in this State, however for the right opportunity I would relocate, preferably in Southern US, or anywhere on the East Coast, or on the Northwest Coast)

bulletI am currently 'Vice President of International Sales'.  My employer is ITC, Independent Technologies Inc. (Omaha, NE). We develop test-sets, systems and upgrades for coin-operated payphones (Berry Test Sets in New London, MN, and Wintel in Orlando, FL, are divisions of ITC).
bulletWorking for ITC as Director of Software, I developed for SPRINT during 1998-2000 an Oracle Client/Server application in Visual C++ and ODBC (it administers  50,000 payphone Contracts, and calculates Commissions due on 60,000 of Sprint's payphones).  It is called "C&C" (Contracts and Commissions).
bulletI have been three years with ITC.  Promoted to Vice President 13 months ago.
bulletITC's website is at   Using MS FrontPage I have created for my company's International Operations a separate website linked to the previous one ( ).  Please, feel free to visit both.

bullet In addition to English, I do speak Spanish (vernacular), Portuguese (semi-vernacular) and French (I lived in Paris).
bulletI am a US citizen (since 1976) who grew up in Northwestern Spain, very close to the Portugal border.
bulletMy Brazilian-born wife is an American Artist (oil on canvas, feel free to visit her online gallery -which I designed- at She does her painting at home.  Therefore, she does not have problem with a -possible- relocation.
bulletOur daughter Alana would be 3 years old next Thanks Giving.  She does not go to school yet, making relocation easier.
