SDWP staff profile: Meet Paul Dacanay

Paul Dacanay is a Database Developer/Administrator with the San Diego Workforce Partnership (SDWP). Here he describes a typical day in the office, discusses what he likes best about working in workforce development and shares what he enjoys doing outside of the office.   

What is a typical day like for you?

My day consists of enhancing and developing custom software solutions that bring increased productivity and efficiency to the organization.

What do you like best about working in workforce development?

The people I work with are an amazing team passionate about impacting the community, offering incredible support and positive energy, which makes working here a very rewarding and enjoyable experience.

What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working?

When I’m not in “The Matrix” writing software code, I’m an apprentice Filipino Martial Arts (FMA) instructor. FMA is the blade, stick and empty hand combat system taught to many military Special Forces. It’s also featured in action films such as The Bourne Identity, Mission Impossible, The Book of Eli, and many other films. So, when everyone has run out of ammo to deal with the zombies, my Blade Brothers and I will be there to help stem the tide.
