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, at the PCI Security Standards Council as their Chief Operating Officer, and most recently, at Virtual Inc. as their Chief Financial Officer.

I am a Fulbright Scholar, and the co-author (with late Professor Renzo Devoto) 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, we have 4 wonderful kids, and we have lived in Chile, China, France, and the United States.
