For nearly the same span of time, I have also acted as an IT manager carrying a handful of different designations, and am now currently the Director for UPOU's ICT Development Office. From 2007 to 2014, I chaired the Diploma in Computer Science program. I was reassigned to the Bachelor of Arts in Multimedia Studies program immediately afterwards and that is where I am at now.

When work is out of the way, I moonlight as an amateur photographer, a musician, and yes, even a new media artist.
