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.
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
