Systems Engineer

Jose Garcia

Being a scientist is all about knowing. But being a systems engineer is all about doing.

Why do you do what you do?

Since the day I got my first computer, I became the guy people would go to when they had a technology problem. Even when I didn't know what the issue was, I never quit until I found the solution. Soon enough, I came across my first piece of code. At the time, I had no idea what it meant or what it was doing, I just knew I wanted to figure it out...and here I am.

Who or what inspires you?

The individuals who inspire me the most are my parents. Knowing what they have had to go through to get me where I am today will always inspire me to never give up. What motivates me the most is knowing that there is always something new to learn with changing technology. Having said that, there are an infinite amount of possibilities that can be created through the use of coding, and with that, I can someday create the next technological discovery. 

What’s something surprising about you?

I was born and raised in Mexico. Therefore, I am fluent in Spanish.
