Career Experience

I have now transitioned back to civilian life and make use of my knowledge and experience to maintain submarines for the Navy through an in-service support contract.

I currently develop and oversee the undertaking of testing procedures for ships systems and combat systems. The complexity of redundant and duplicate systems makes this work both challenging and stimulating.

Why I Became A Technology Professional

  • I was the technophile in the family while growing up, and it was better than driving a tank in the Army.
