Ray T Rodriguez
I consider myself an experienced business entrepreneur with extensive experience in program management, and systems engineering. I have worked primarily in international markets delivering video encoding and encryption software. Much of my engineering work involves designing, and managing the deployment of complex communications networks. I thoroughly enjoy my work and I have done well by it professionally and financially. In addition, I have a passion for understanding and appreciating the humanities. For as long as I can remember, my parents never met a child they didn’t treat as their own. My wife and I continued this practice. While raising our family, we led in caring for the children at our local church and in training our teachers to do the same. I sought a Juris Doctorate degree with the intention of seeking a political career in order to contiue this effort on a larger scale. Upon completion of this degree, I realized politics for me might have been a bit misguided. However, during this effort, I recognized a symbiotic relationship between the law and an individual’s moral construct. The benefit of deeply understanding computers and communications systems design, programming, and military thought & strategy further enhanced my understanding on the subject of morals and propelled me into possibly answering a personal thesis question regarding trauma. In essence, "why is it possible for two seemingly identically prepared soldiers to resopnd in drastically different ways to traumatic events ?"
