OBJECTIVE: Seeking a challenging position as a senior manager.
ABILITIES: Able to communicate clearly and effectively. Experienced in proposal writing, project planning, monitoring and execution as well as conflict resolution. Have excellent knowledge of object oriented analysis and design, spiral methodology, structured design as well as UNIX and VAX/VMS operating systems. Also experienced in Java, HTML, C++, C, X/Motif, Windows SDK, OPS83, OPS5, Pascal, BASIC as well as FORTRAN. Able to learn new systems and languages as required. Able to function in multiple team roles as required. Member of the SEI SPIN (Software Process Improvement Network)
EXPERIENCE: Carnegie Mellon University Interactive Systems Laboratories: September 1997 - Present. Project Scientist. Manage Carnegie Mellon's portion of the Genoa project, a crisis identification and mitigation tool being developed for DARPA. Developing an automatic meeting summarizer and browser that allows users to quickly review meetings through a combination of audio, video, and text.

Carnegie Group: June 1989 - September 1997. Project Manager. Primary duties include overseeing design and implementation of object oriented and knowledge based systems using Java, C and C++.

· TIPSTER/Underline. Project Manager. Responsible for the design and implementation of an object oriented system that is written in Java and that produces query relevant summaries. This system is being developed for the DoD.
· CADET. Project Manager. A planning, wargaming, analysis and decision support system being developed for CECOM. Responsible for proposal writing, prototyping, implementation, and deployment.
· KBLPS. Project Manager. Responsible for designing, implementing and delivering a system that performs logistics planning. Provide technical leadership and direction. Mentor junior team members by providing technical leadership and direction. Provide user support as necessary.
· TRAC2ES. Project Manager. Responsible for the architecture of a medical evacuation planning and monitoring system developed for US TRANSCOM using object oriented methodologies and a distributed database over a wide area network. Managed a 7 member team providing technical leadership and direction. Coordinated with other project managers on the team. Required extensive customer contact, interviewing subject matter experts and ability to quickly learn and assume new tasks and responsibilities as necessary.
· MDRC (Manufacturability Design Rule Checker). Project Leader. Technical lead for a 4 member team from the initial phase through deployment. Duties included writing and reviewing proposals, requirements analysis, design, test, and user manuals. Overseeing the work of myself and 3 others. MDRC generates an insertion order for a series of components and performs a feasibility design rule check on printed circuit boards prior to manufacture.
· Hybrid Engineering Analysis. Responsible for analyzing the hybrid engineering and manufacturing processes at Ford Motor Company and making recommendations for improvements. Responsible for interviewing engineers, draftsmen, and plant personnel in order to determine the concerns and the best way that they can be addressed. Also included a market analysis of the hybrid products that were currently available on the market.

· SEE (Simultaneous Engineering Environment) Implementation. A report for implementing a concurrent engineering environment at Ford Motor Company. Responsible for writing, editing and coordinating the sections with others.

· PKS. Member of the team responsible for designing and implementing a system for performing design rule checking on injection molded parts. Duties included design, implementation and deployment as well as interviewing design experts.

Trimeter Technologies: January 1986 - May 1989. Software Engineer. Primary duties included the design and implementation of algorithms based on mathematical and AI techniques. All projects were written in OPS83 and C.
· Boolean factorization. This module takes as input either a set of Boolean equations or a PLA. It detects and removes shared expressions using heuristics to quickly provide a high quality solution.

· Verifier. The Verifier is an internal Trimeter Technologies tool used to check logical equivalence between two netlist, Boolean equation or PLA files.

· Evaluation Library. This library reads a series of Boolean equation and PLA files. It converts from one format to another. It finds equivalence sets, verifies functional equivalence, and determines the output vector given an input vector.

· State Minimization and Assignment. This module reads a four column PLA description of a state machine, optimally minimizes the number of states, performs state assignment and generates a two column PLA. Assignment is done using all types of flip flops which the user specifies.

· Responsible for porting internal software from Apollo DOMAIN/IX to VMS and to Ultrix.

Carnegie Group: Summer 1985. Knowledge Engineer in the Engineering Design group. Responsible for three projects: the design and implementation of a floorplan system which places components on a printed circuit board; a program which draws a schematic from a symbolic representation; and the improvement of the graphics system for a signal analysis program. Programs were written in OPS5 and C.
Seti Corporation: Summer 1984. Systems analysis and weapons design. Primary duties included the design, simulation and modeling of weapon systems. Required extensive knowledge of physics, statistics, algorithms, and advanced calculus. Also created graphics package and database designed to given specifications.
EDA: Summer 1983. Systems analysis and program development. Worked with a series of programs that generated a real estate appraisal formula, validated the formula, then use this to generate appraisals. Duties included somewhat extensive modifications to existing, uncommented programs, testing, and creation of a menu driven file management program to aid in the upkeep of data files used in running the program.
