Hispanic Heritage Month Spotlight: Jarvis Diaz

Hispanic Heritage Month was created to recognize the contributions and achievements of people with Hispanic or Latinx backgrounds. The hope is by highlighting Hispanic culture, people will be inspired and strive for their own successes.

At ThinkPod, we also wanted to highlight the hard work and struggles of some of our own Hispanic and Latinx connections which is why we would like to celebrate the achievements of Jarvis Diaz.

Jarvis is the father of two members of the ThinkPod team. They both attribute their father’s strength and fortitude in the face of struggle to their own efforts to achieve.

50-year-old Jarvis is the president of Vencader, a shipping company, but the path to success was a difficult one. Born in Caracas, Venezuela, Jarvis spent his formative years in San Agustin parish. Even though his family didn’t always have enough resources, Jarvis didn’t let that stop him from reaching his goals.

Setting his sights on a career in Logistics and Customs, Jarvis worked hard for many years and garnered many achievements. In 2009, he launched his own company: Encomiendas Vipjar Courier. Unfortunately, the ongoing crisis in Venezuela led to an eventual shutdown, but it did not dampen Jarvis’s aspirations.

After a few years of getting things back on track, he was able to bring his dreams to life once again with a new name and new image. Jarvis’s worth ethic and motivation launched Vencader in 2021.

ThinkPod is proud of its connection to Jarvis Diaz!

Charlie Davidson

Product Manager

While Charlie has only been in tech for just over a year, learning has been a lifelong passion. From cybersecurity to product ownership to software engineering, he leave's no stone unturned when it comes to the tech space (except sales, Charlie is not ideal at sales.) When he isn't working in tech, some of Charlie's passions include raising teenagers, dogs, developing his software engineering skills, and expanding his "tethics" network!

Ronny Diaz

Designer

During my years at university, I studied graphic design, but my innate curiosity with all aspects of art and designled me to complement my undergraduate degree with photography, illustration, and plastic arts as well. This well-rounded education has served me well when working with companies to create their brand identity. Now, my biggest challenge is creating a design here at Thinkpod that inspires you to make real connections and pursue your own creative endeavors.

Gabriela Diaz

Director of Operations

I was born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela; from a very young age, I liked to have my things organized and planned; I could make a schedule of the games that I was going to play that day, you could say that a planning role was always in me. Life has led me to connect with people who have contributed to my personal and professional growth in one way or another. I am one of those individuals who think that life will take care of the rest when you do well and with good energy. I came to Thinkpod thanks to the connections I made in the work and personal world, which is why I trust this platform a lot and all the great things that people can achieve.

Business Development Representative

I have always loved languages, Learning English has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. Being able to communicate with people from all around the world and understanding them is an amazing feeling. That's why I want to become a polyglot one day. So far I have been studying Japanese and looking forward to learning Portuguese! Working with different people as a Virtual Assistant has taught me so much about interactions and how important connections are. And it helped me to further develop skills like Social Media, Community Management, Content Creation, and Business Development. As a Virtual Assistant, I was able to meet Jess not realizing that it was the start of something incredible. When I heard about ThinkPod I thought it was a great idea to help people connect, collaborate and create. Networking is one of the most important things you can do nowadays. 失敗は成功のもと (Shippai wa seikoo no moto) "Failure teaches success"

Blake Bradford

Web Developer and Designer

As a self-taught developer, I’ve often struggled with finding a place to fit in. I began to learn programming as a hobby a couple years ago, and almost immediately found myself at a crossroads when I decided to make a career switch into full-time web development. I had volunteered as a developer on civic coding projects for about a year, but still found it difficult to get my foot in the door; too many entry-level positions require 2-3 years of professional experience and a computer science degree to be even considered for an interview! I’m thrilled to be a part of bringing ThinkPod to life, and to help other driven professionals with non-traditional backgrounds break through their own barriers to success.
