How would you describe what you do in your current role?
My role is in Program Management that leads, plans, organizes and controls the implementation of overall projects. I coordinate activities with our Luxury Audio engineering teams as well as our HARMAN finance, quality and compliance team members to deliver quality products on time and on budget. I work closely with our suppliers in developing products and facilitating tasks with R&D in Northridge or Cambridge.
What did you study in school? Did you always imagine yourself doing something like what you’re doing now or did the fates just take you in that direction?
I studied computer electronics and business. I always like and enjoy the work I have, all the time! Working in a well-known audio company is the most enjoyable time I have ever had.
How did your career path lead you to HARMAN?
I have always liked to listen to music since childhood. My family members were always playing musical instruments and we listened to music at home on turntables, cartridges, cassettes, CD, MP3 and now Wi-Fi streaming. I am very grateful to work at HARMAN.

Any other advice you would share with people just starting out in this industry?

What are you most proud of in your life?
When you start seeing the product you worked on start selling in the market.
What current technology impresses you the most?
