David has been involved in The Employee Network since he was just a child. Born in Arizona, but raised in California he found his instincts were to return to the place of his birth and moved back to Arizona 9 years ago. He achieved an Associate's degree in Accounting before pivoting his attentions to the elusive science of computers.
When he steps away from the mysterious arts of the keyboard he enjoys playing basketball, socializing, and the gentlemen's activity of whiskey tasting. Though he prefers a lowkey life, his name has been thrown in the ring for the next Most Interesting Man In The World position.
Miguel Almaraz came to The Employee Network in 2013, and many say that is when this company really started to gel.
While some say that he has a tendency to over analyze situations, at least you’ll know that when he gives you an answer, it’s been well thought out.
As far as his past, you name it - he’s probably done it. …or despite many offers has made a conscious decision not to do it.
Educated? Check! A true Sun Devil, he graduated from ASU just a few years ago (wink) and he also holds an MBA with emphasis in Marketing.
Managed at a fortune 500 company? Check! He worked for Motorola for 11 years, gaining a wealth of business insight.
Started a local chapter of an International Usability Association? Check! Miguel founded the Arizona chapter of the User Experience Professionals Association (UXPA).
Published Author? You guessed it, CHECK! Miguel is a published author of a very informative piece that has been published in English, Spanish and Mandarin. So, in short, you could say that he’s internationally known, nationally recognized and locally accepted.
If you ask him for a quote, he may give you one of two:
“They all do it, they just don’t know it yet.”
