Telecommunications, Audio / Visual Technician
I started working part time in Housekeeping doing cleaning and maintenance in 1982. I kept my eyes open for opportunities in other departments, and I was lucky to find one in Telecommunications because technology has always driven me. Fortunately, after all the changes throughout the years, I'm still here. Dana-Farber is one of the best hospitals in the area to work for, and I'm proud of what it stands for.
I'm in charge of setting up videoconference meetings and assisting with audiovisual (AV) equipment and PowerPoint presentations for large meetings. Each conference room is set up differently, so it keeps us hopping. It helps to go with the flow and adjust to whatever changes come up.
A lot of people get nervous when they have to do presentations. Sometimes the speakers forget their laptop and panic, so my job is to put them at ease. It's not easy talking in public. I have been nominated for awards but never won, and I'm partially glad I didn't because I'm shy. If I won, I would have to think of something to say in front of all those people!
Yes. My wife Anabella has worked as a cosmetologist in the Friends Place for nine years. My son Joshua has worked in Research Computing for one year. They chose to work at Dana-Farber primarily because of my personal experience at the Institute. My other two children have also worked here in temporary jobs, and they would love to come back.
I spend time with my family and like dancing and making music, which is my passion. I'm a part-time musician and also have been a Latin music DJ for 28 years. I go to clubs with my wife, which is better than going to the gym, and more fun. I play percussion and used to have my own 13-piece Latin band called Son Moreno with my brother. Moreno is my mother's maiden name; we're originally from Bogota, Colombia. We had a lot of fun and we got to share the stage with a lot of big-name Latin bands.
