PRIMARY EMPLOYMENT TIMELINE

HIGHLIGHTS AND LEVEL UPs

I have led the product, design and development of new platforms in a large multi-national enterprise environment as well as a small/mid-size startup environment. Some of projects were used internally by top CXOs and their staff; others projects were new features or wholly new systems; and some were thought exercises that resulted in academic publication and awards.

I am proud that products and features I have managed, designed and architected have been cited as reasons for multi-million dollar contracts  being signed, companies being funded or acquired, and marketing/sales teams getting customers and having successful POCs.
