Ricardo is not from here or there, although he currently resides in the San Francisco Bay Area if you must know. Ricardo has wandered through the world, leaving in places like Italy and Mexico, volunteering in Egypt and Hungary and as an avid traveler has spent more time away from his two cats than he should have.
He is an occasional amateur chef, but has done random appearances as a wedding photographer or impromptu musician with his saxophone and guitar. He has a passion for communicating with people which has led him to learn languages, he speaks English, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish, currently he is learning Japanese and although he studied French during his high school years, he completely forgot all about, perhaps it was living in Italy and the pasta and wine influence? Who knows.
Ricardo currently works as a Product Manager for ACFS at Oracle and is based in Oracle headquarters in Redwood Shores, California, where he he is passionate about working as a buffer/translator between developers and customers, training the field and sharing as much as he can about Oracle technology.
Ricardo is also a Tico, meaning a Costa Rica native but with a profound love for Mexico, where his wife and muse is from.
