Cambridge, USA - 2010

I joined the World Wide Web Consortium in October 2006 and served as its Business Manager until June 2010. My primary goal was to foster a business and operating environment that was cost-effective, productive and positive, across all W3C operating locations.

I coordinated financial matters across the Consortium, prepared budget plans and reports, monitored budget execution, coordinated legal matters, and supported Membership development. I participated in the Management Team and coordinated the Invited Expert Program. I was also a member of the Web Foundation's Board of Directors, representing W3C. My office was located in Cambridge, at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, in a fun building called the Stata Center, designed by Frank Gehry.

Prior to joining W3C I worked at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso in Chile; first as a Project Manager, and eventually as the Director of Finance for the University. I was also a lecturer at the Business School for many years, teaching Economics and Finance to undergrads, and Negotiation at the MBA program. In Boston I have been a lecturer at Suffolk University, and a guest speaker at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Since leaving W3C I have worked at the MIT Media Lab as their Director of Finance and, most recently, at the PCI Security Standards Council as their Chief Operating Officer.

I am a Fulbright Scholar, and the co-author (with Professor Renzo Devoto, Dean of the Business School) of Financial Mathematics: A Decision Making Approach, an introductory finance textbook published by the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso, and a Master's degree in Business Administration from Suffolk University.

I am married to Heather Lance and we have lived in Chile, China, France, and the United States. We have 3 wonderful kids, Camila, Xavier and Connor.
