U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel
33 years served
Seeking a career in information technology
For the past 15+ years I’ve enjoyed a successful Information Technology (IT) career in the U.S. Army, in positions such as IT Manager, IT Director, and Information Technology Project Manager. During that time I’ve had the opportunity and privilege of being a part of both leading and contributing to wide variety of IT initiatives and programs, beginning in 2002 as an IT Service Desk Technician/Manager/Systems Administrator.
My recent position included the direction of a program that offers the Army Reserve a new capability as a " screening force" to accelerate innovation within the Army and provide access to private sector innovators and technology leaders through Army Reserve Soldiers employed in those fields. The new capability operates within a Nationwide Distributed Network (NDN) consisting of Autonomy/ Robotics, Operations and Processes, Cyber/IT, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, VR/Gaming, Energy/Materials, Blockchain, Human Capital, and Medical/Synthetic Biology portfolios.
Currently, I am working as a Cyber Security Intern for Dignity Health in Phoenix, Arizona through the DoD Skillbridge program. The skillbridge program permits transitioning service members to use their last 180 days of service to work and learn with industry partners.
In November 2019, I will be transitioning from the Army to continue my IT career here in the Phoenix Valley.
