Master of Engineering professional experienced as an engineer, architect, developer and team leader. Accomplished Project Manager and Director demonstrating proactive application of digital technologies and agile methodologies balanced between engineering, development, automation, adaptive processing, and distributed systems. Senior Dot NET Developer adept at user engagement and robust feature rich solutions. Solution Evangelist with recognized command of processes, distributed systems, analytics, machine learning, and multiple digital technologies.
My background integrates unique understanding of operations, knowledge, and analytics. I actively balance engineering, design, architecture, and applications with special consideration toward operations, knowledge, and analytics.
Projects which I lead are based on robust, reliable, resilient, and reproducible solutions. I approach knowledge engineering as data engineering – real-time tactical analytics, after-the-fact forensic analytics, and pre-project predictive analytics.
My management approach is the collaborative and cross-discipline concepts based on the 5th Discipline / Learning Organizations; the team pulls energy and excitement from the project. My team building philosophy is “the best team member is the one that can work anywhere, but chooses to work here”
I began developing military avionics systems for General Dynamics and Sikorsky Aircraft. Since 1990, I have been developing Systems and Applications for the Energy Industry including integrated information systems, systems analytics, real-time processing, and operations management. Teams I have led have included small and agile systems groups, interdisciplinary mission avionics groups, and industry leading proactive predictive analytics, case based reasoning, and data mining.
I'm a contributing leader in public conferences as an Applied System Engineer and Machine Learning Architect. I am a contributing author for energy industry and computer science magazines, speaker at industry conferences, and Professor of Computer Science at Lone Star College.
