My Professional Life

I have enjoyed a number of careers in my working life. I started as an electronics design engineer in the defense industry, moving to commercial electronics and broadening my skills to include mechanical and optical design. 

I moved from there to semiconductor sales where I was focused on data communications and defense designs.  That focus on communications eventually transitioned me into the IT world, starting as a network administrator then to senior network engineer, and eventually to where I am now.  Currently I manage a cybersecurity team for a global enterprise. 

Professional Achievements

My technical achievements are listed in this section of the web site and include electronic systems for planes, tanks, cookers, industrial controllers, digital road signs and a whole host of other things.  I have designed my own silicon chip from concept to production.  I have also designed data centers and remote site networks for a global enterprise.

Professional Skills & Certifications

From this varied background I have developed skills in coding, teaching, mentoring and managing projects. I have presented to engineer, executives, and have taught VHDL to other engineers for creating programmable logic devices.  I have often operated and communicated in multi language, multi cultural environments and currently manage an international team across multiple time zones.  I currently hold the following professional certifications:
  • Six Sigma Yellow Belt 
  • Six Sigma White Belt
  • CompTIA Net+
  • Brivo Technical Certification
