In the past few weeks, so many people have asked me what do I for living. That’s obviously a good indication that I need to do a better job branding myself out.

I have a full-time job that pay for my monthly bills. I’m an Associate/Manager of Information Technology at SmithGroup, Inc, overseeing IT projects, implementations and daily operations.

I’m also the co-founder and VP/Chief Technology of Ordia Solutions, Inc along with current CEO, my business partner and trusted friend, Mr. Joe Ordia. The company was founded in 2005 and it’s dedicated to provide real-time collaboration and situational awareness to law enforcement agencies and first responder units. In simple terms, we are a software company that develops whatever the police pay us to do.

The core of our business is the Mobile Tactical Collaboration System™ (blue force tracking system – GPS) with other added features such AdvanTraq™ GPS and AdvanTraq™ GPS Mic. In simple terms, we provide software similar to Google Maps on serious steroids. This application can be integrated to any other application due to its open and simple framework. If you are the police, you would want to know your units’ exact location and the units would like to know who’s near. You would also want to be able to pull records and other tactical data from multiple sources in real-time.
