¾¾¾¾¾¾¾¾¾¾¾ Objective and Temperament ¾¾¾¾¾¾¾¾¾¾¾

I am a very resourceful man with a strong work ethic looking for a role in management consulting or business development management. I am especially interested in a role where I can apply my bilingual Spanish/English skills. I have a managerial temperament type (ENTJ on Myers-Briggs). My experience is multifarious, ranging from entrepreneur to author to technical to sales to academic, giving me a broad-based knowledge and skills set. I will not disappoint the firm that hires me for the role I am seeking. I was raised in southern California and still have ties there, although I am willing to locate elsewhere in the USA, Canada, Chile, Argentina, or New Zealand. I am willing to travel up to 25% of the time.
