My name is Dennis Errikson and I am a Creative. I have a gift for understanding how things work; I have pledged my life towards finding what’s wrong with the world and fixing it.
I am currently working in partnership with individuals and organizations to fix problems in maternal and child health care, customer service, education and youth unemployment.
I pride myself in being a Master Jack of all Trades; with a bias for technology-driven solutions.
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Physics, Electronics and I.T. Applications, a Masters’ Degree in Data Processing and a number of professional certificates in data analysis, networking and telecommunications.
