CEO of Mancuso International L.L.C., Nickname: "Gus Egg"
Graduate of the Undergraduate Investment Banking Network at the Indiana University Bloomington, Kelley School of Business (Seminar class of 2011). I was a transfer student from University of Georgia, Athens. I have a degree in Finance and another in Economic Consulting from the Kelley School of Business.
I understand Portuguese, basic Spanish, and am a student of Chinese and Italian. I was born in United States and have very strong Sicilian/Italian beliefs and values.
I received an 'A+' (as a mark of excellence) and 'A' in Programming I and II at IU Bloomington. Python was Intro and Java was Programming II (intro to software systems). Christian took his first progamming class in high school where he built a virtual boardgame that was elected to market the class to potential future students.
Programming experience after college:
Apache servers including firewalls, virtual hosts, command line LINUX implementing servers and running SQL commands, working with databases through command line rather than 3rd party applications like PHPMyAdmin
While working full-time as a financial analyst at Johnson & Johnson, Christian hired a team of programmers to build a website and app using an algorithm and database he developed. Since Christian was an experienced personal trainer and nutritionist, he wanted to start an internet-based nutritionist and professional services business, and was funding it through his full-time job. The development took years and the final product was very low quality after outsourcing the development to various foreign companies in Pakistan and India. Since the value driver of the product was the algorithm Christian built and the diets being provided, Christian launched the website and app on Google Play and Apple since it was sufficient in providing the key value offering (Christian's diets) even though the quality was low. Since Christian knew he was highly gifted in programming, studied programming since high school and stood out in college at IU Bloomington receiving A+ as unique marks of excellence in his programming classes, he decided to take the previous apps down, dissolve the business, and rebuild the website and apps his own way completely from scratch. Christian decided to teach programming, focusing on logic and what really matters -- the customer. Chris hires nutritionists from around the world and leverages his expertise in healthcare and experience working with athletes and clients with medical conditions such as lupus as a certified personal trainer and nutritionist since the age of 19.
TEACHING & COACHING
My teaching experience began before college, as a certified nutrition and fitness coach, working at a gym in the greater NYC area. I trained about 10 clients with a WITS certification (nutrition included) and a National Academy of Sports Medicine certification. I was considered an "advanced-level" CPT and Nutrition Coach, offering individual sessions at a premium rate.
Since then, I've been consulting and teaching as a certified teacher, working with schools in various countries. I teach mostly online, and have experience teaching in actual classrooms in South America.
At Indiana University, I helped teach within the classrooms of two advanced Excel and Access classes (BUS-K 201 and BUS-X 201). I have very strong Excel skills and am exceptional at leveraging innate analytical capabilities to provide real-world solutions using Excel models and programming languages.
I completed a two-year international leadership program at Johnson & Johnson, being recruited from Kelley. Upon graduating the program, I was one of a select amount of graduates to take on immediate supervisor responsibilities. I supervised until receiving my final guaranteed promotion as part of the leadership program, and then decided to leave the company to start my own nutritionist business. My hiring company in the leadership program was Ethicon/Mentor, and I rotated through Mentor and Janssen Pharm. Since my decision was to leave the company and my hiring company was in Santa Barbara, CA, I stayed in PA at a company called McNeil for six more months after graduating the program rather than taking the contractual relocation package, and left upon receiving my final guaranteed promotion in Q4 2013. I received the following anonymous feedback from the two year leadership program:
"Christian is a great team player and works very well with others." Johnson &Johnson
"Extremely intelligent and grasps concepts easily. Not afraid to speak
his mind." Johnson & Johnson
"Very knowledgeable, quick learner of Financial Reporting Systems &
Excel applications" Johnson & Johnson
"Managing multiple tasks at once" Johnson & Johnson
"None that I am aware of. Christian is one of the most mature,
responsible and collaborative FLDP's I have worked with." Johnson & Johnson
After hiring a company to build my websites, I decided to completely rebuild them, completely myself, from beginning to end. These websites are in PHP, JS, HTML, CSS
Unique Achievements: After the $6.3 billion acquisition announcement of Staples acquiring Office Depot / Office Max, I was hired by Office Depot, Inc. and became lead finance of store synergies during the acquisition approval decision. Owning the Bain Consulting sales model, I brought the synergies up nearly double to an accurate duopoly rate, helping support the FTC decision to stop the monopolistic acquisition and save jobs at the South Florida HQ and in retail stores everywhere. This was an unbiased correction based on redirected sales lift results.

I received an A+, offered by some teachers at IU as a unique mark of distinction, in the following classes:
I manage a diversified company with apps, websites, and a focus on professional services. I enjoy driving my motorcycle on hot days delivering food occasionally too! This ensures I am always an ENTREPRENEUR with revenue coming in.
Fun facts about Chris Ronnie. Chris Ronnie, often referred to by his hometown friends as "Ronnie" was sung about in a top hit song? That's right! The song Dragula from the Hellbilly Deluxe album was about his family and him. Chris was born to single mother, Michelle Monguso, and is the first born of the first born of the first born of the Mancuso "mafia" who arrived here from Sicily in the early 1900s. Antonio Mancuso was named Antonio Monguso. His son, Vincent Monguso, was drafted during the war and fought to support feminism and black empowerment and is the reason Chris and his grandfather didn't get along. Vin married Nancy Puhl, with Chris being entitled to Italian dual citizenship through Right of Blood. Chris was poisoned as a child in the haunted woods of New Jersey (Middletown). Chris was poisoned after his step dad decided to build a house himself in a home that was not legally allowed to be moved into. While building the house, his stepdad lost eyesight in one eye. Since his stepdad knew Chris was the "mafia", his stepdad became very paranoid thinking the "mafia" poisoned him and started prioritizing racism against what he didn't understand. Chris currently tutors out of Tijuana, Mexico. His stepfather (chip ronnie) and his sister nearly lost their eyesight, but everyone survived! Chris believes he can contribute to a better world, helping what he refers to as "the best" girls with their intrinsic desires of becoming secretaries and helpers in a world that has become increasingly complex, tutoring financial accounting using his experience in finance. Chris reminds everyone that the "mafia" is not an organization, nor is it a mob -- it is just a last name, a last name that signifies the most firm-rooted Latin genetics. Christian reminds everyone not to stick your tongue out and look at the sky, as it is what the communists from the north started doing after Christian was poisoned.
Chris started teaching online following a disability. Chris was stabbed in the neck and in the liver with what LAPD Gang Unit detective described as a 'sheathed' knife while celebrating his 30th birthday in Los Angeles. Chris survived the robbery of his phone and attempted murder, walking away from the El Salvardoran restaurant after a life-saving "miss" and slice on his right ribcage. Chris found his way to a hospital where he received emergency medical attention, repairing his liver. Chris was working as a bouncer at a nightclub in San Diego, but remained in Los Angeles with his disability until deciding to work out of Latin America and start an international wellness and professional services company with a priority of evading the worst people who ever walked this planet, hackers and those who invade people's privacy.
As far as beliefs and values, I don't believe the United States should have a military, and I don't believe in the United States communistic mindset

What is your teaching philosophy?
I like to use real-world experience in various functions and capacities of the teaching process.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Work to understand the student's requests, the subject area that they need support with, and focus on the key areas of understanding that may result in mastering the academic area.
