Interim Operations Director
Rolando has extensive experience in the nonprofit sector. In 1999 after completing his undergraduate and graduate work in engineering from Stanford University and successfully launching a small business, Rolando joined the Schools Online development team. As Regional Program Director, he later coordinated the installation of thirty-eight Internet Learning Centers in under-resourced urban and rural schools in Spain, India and Latin America. Before coming to BCM in 2006, Rolando was Executive Producer at Plugged In, an East Palo Alto nonprofit that empowered people “to produce, create and contribute using technology.” There he led the growth of a community portal, EPA.net, and re launched the teen youth media program, Young Producers. He joined BCM after his tenure there, quickly filling the role of Director of Operations. In 2008, he became the Executive Director. On a personal note, Rolando and his wife, Dolores, are proud parents of Sophia, Raquel, Christian, and Paulina.
