Alexander Ortiz, Owner - Axon Engineering Services LLC
"Alex Ortiz was born in Cali, Colombia, and came to the United Sates with his family at 8 years old, in 1985. He grew up in Uptown Manhattan (Washington Heights), attended Aviation HS in Queens, NY, and after high school spent two years searching for his â€˜calling', when he realized, through some life lessons, that you must be more intentional with your actions for it to bring about change. Alex is a registered Professional Engineer in the States of New York and New Jersey, and has worked with multiple mid-size consulting firms, in the mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection design construction industry. In the last two firms, he led the electrical department for the companies. Last year he decided to focus on his personal engineering firm and partnered with a close colleague to develop what they consider an innovated product for the HVAC industry. Alex volunteers his time for HISPA (Hispanics Inspiring Students' Performance and Achievement) by visiting middle schools and sharing his story. Also, Alex stays in contact with the City College of NY engineering student club Latin American Engineering Student Association, chapter of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (LAESA-SHPE), who helped him during his college years.
