Adrenaline loving Technologist with 17+ years of telecommunications experience. I currently lead strategic technology and architecture studies for Mobile Devices under Device Technology group. I am responsible to evaluate next generation technologies and help build technology ecosystem to support Verizon's strategic business initiatives. I am training to be a meditation coach, and someday I plan to expand my teaching to little kids in schools. It will be fun seeing the little yogis sitting in meditation practice! I definitely see an opportunity to train young minds on how to stay in the moment and train them on awareness and mindfulness.
