Personal Background

How I got here:

I began my military career as a Medic, then an Electrician, and finally settled in as a Submarine Sonar Technician where I was the guy listening to the whales and dolphins. I spent the next few years operating and maintaining this electrical, electronic, & mechanical system culminating in my becoming the team leader. I took my expertise and operational skills and put them to work as the Lead Instructor of a 24-week advanced employment school. I enjoyed teaching so much that I used my off time to earn a BS degree in Workforce Education & Development. 

That degree propelled me from working under the ocean to flying above it in the Navy's premier Command and Control Aircraft. Flying off of aircraft carriers was awesome! In the air I operated the radar and communication systems and was responsible for mission success; while on the ground I was the Legal Officer, Maintenance Officer, Aviation Safety Officer, and Asst. Operations Officer. Next I began working with contractors from L-3, SAIC, BAE, Lockheed Martin, and others in testing new Command, Control, Communication, and Computer (C4) systems and procedures. After a couple of years of leading edge technology work I was sent to Baghdad Iraq for a year to assist with the reconstruction of that country's banking infrastructure and monitor their budget expenditures. After Iraq I became the Training Officer for a 450-person department. My final two years was spent getting simulator and aircraft system needs into the DoD budget while monitoring implementation. I also used that time to earn an MBA with an HR concentration.
