Academic and Professional Background
Graduate from The Univeristy at Buffalo, The State University of New York with a Bachelor of Science in Informatics and Computer Science, I'm currently pursuing a Master of Business Administration (MBA) with a dual major in Computer Information Systems and Operations Management in the Zicklin School of Business at Baruch College - The City University of New York - (Degree expected Dec 2012).
In my professional career, I have worked in the field of Information Technology in which I provided various Information Technology solutions to Business Institutions and Non-for-Profit organizations.

During an internship at the United Nations Headquarters as an Information Systems Intern, I assisted the Information Management/Systems officers with a number of high-priority projects. I coordinated the preparation of the inventory of all treaty maps published in the UN Treaty Series on paper since 1945, their digitization,records creation in the Documentum-based treaty database and their web-publication on the United Nations Treaty Section Collection website.

In addition, I created a file system consisting of the digitized issues of the Monthly Statement of Treaties and International Agreements published from 1971 to 1998. This is a valuable collection of legal materials which is used by the Legal Officers of the Treaty Section and the Legal Assistants in all manner of legal research and reporting on treaty law matters and practice.
