Alexander Darino, Owner-Operator (Resume)
Emerging Technology Strategist
Alexander Darino is a successful start-up entrepreneur and IT Business Consultant. With an extensive yet thorough multidisciplinary background, Alexander has often been described as the “Jack of All Trades, Master of Some”. In anticipating problems early on, restructuring inefficient work flows, and identifying low-risk, high-reward opportunities, Alexander has had the unique distinction of frequently eliminating the need for his own job. “I know I’ve addressed all of my customer’s needs when I never hear from them again (for that issue).”
Currently, Alexander operates as a freelance consultant under Ryoga Independent LLC. He also serves as CEO for Inner Health by Adriana, where he spearheaded a rebranding initiative that helped the already well-established business triple its growth and take advantage of new market opportunities yielding high returns on investment.
Prior to forming Ryoga Independent LLC and serving as CEO of Inner Health by Adriana, Alexander has served roles in software development, IT administration, academic research, and academic instruction, among others.
While serving as part of the Help Desk at SunGard Public Sector, Alexander volunteered to create a system consolidating internal documentation and providing project management with tracking and change-control capabilities; this system eliminated numerous bottlenecks in team communication, and greatly facilitated project collaboration. He also took the initiative to modernize their system imaging process by creating a company-customized, server-deployable version of the Windows 7 operating system using the latest technologies from and best practices recommended by Microsoft.
With a grant from the National Science Foundation, Alexander engaged in research in the field of Computer Vision and developed algorithms to perform the automatic recognition and identification of business entities within images. His research was subsequently published and presented at the 10th International Conference on Machine Learning and Applications (ICMLA11).
Alexander’s love of learning is paralleled only by his love of teaching. He has tutored a multitude of subjects over the years to students of all ages and backgrounds. His experience spans private tutoring, group instruction, lecture hall instruction, teaching a university course, and e-tutoring. A self-taught learning specialist, Alexander doesn’t just relay information; he empowers his students to master the material once, and master it for a lifetime.
Alexander received his Computer Science BS from the University of Central Florida. He is also an experienced IT technician bearing A+, Network+, and Security+ certification, and is the co-author of Street View Challenge: Identification of Commercial Entities in Street View Imagery.
