Attention: Human resources manager / Engineering manager,

I am applying for the Hardware Engineer position in the field of Digital
ASIC/FPGA design Engineering or Applications Engineering. I am
considering both permanent and contract positions.

I have a Master's degree (MSEE) in Electrical Engineering and my industry
experience includes four years of Digital ASIC Design Engineering and one
year of Applications Engineering.

My engineering experience, in DSP and Video products, includes working on
various stages of the design flow and performing functions such as RTL
logic design using Verilog; design verification; FPGA design; Dynamic
timing analysis using TimeMill; Test pattern generation using Tetramax;
PCB design. As an FAE, I managed customers in the Asia pacific region and
managed and resolved customer issues using video encoding ASIC.

I am a Canadian resident and my Canadian Citizenship application has been filed.
I am  willing to relocate and I can be reached at (416) 716-5634 (Cell) or
