Transparency, compassion, creativity, and critical thinking are the quadfecta that helps my team achieve great heights.
Before, when I was in college, I always imagined that project management was just a bunch of tedious processes to drive projects from start to end. I thought that it was enough to know the basics, and then all should be good.
But this isn’t how great project managers work at all.
Immediately after graduating college, I started working as a developer. At that point, I felt like there should be more to it which led me to begin searching for answers that brought me the following objectives:
I improved the existing processes of the teams I’ve worked with by being someone they can trust. Project management is not just about the processes needed to make a project successful; not just about satisfying the stakeholders by saying “YES” to everything in defiance of logic and in exchange for the teams’ morale. It is more than that, and that’s where I stand with my team.
The crafts that I’ve acquired throughout my career.
Take a look at the stuff that I’ve learned during the span of my career, from being a developer up to becoming a project manager. Everything you need to know is listed down below.
Always seeking for avenues of growth.
I like researching new stuff not just for my career but also for myself outside the industry; as you read through this site, I might be currently learning something new. Of course, not everything needs to be on paper, such as certificates, but here are some.

JC de Borja – Hey there, I hope you enjoyed reading through my resume.
You’re probably still reading through this message because you’re curious about who I am. Well... here are some more things about me, but I need to cut this short. Because... you know... marketing... I need to get in a call with you! Ok, I’m a person who is very passionate about the things I do in life. I am a project manager right now because I love leading people to their success. Outside of the career world, I do a lot of stuff; I travel, play musical instruments, sing, draw, program, I’m a race car driver, handyman, photographer and much more. There is so much to live that you should turn every day into an adventure. Are you ready to be a part of it?
