Francisco did his first footsteps in Portugal but is now based in Milan, Italy since 1999.
His first experience with Cisco was with a Cisco Gold Partner in Portugal, in 1995, as a technical support engineer. His experience grew to become senior systems engineer and then consultant, when he achieved his CCIE Certification (1997).
