ESTABLISHED SECURITY FOR NEW YORK CITY EMPLOYEES
2006 – Smart Card Integrators – Los Angeles, CA
Assisted SAIC in the design and deployment of smart card credential based security for New York City employees. Provided a unique, non-counterfeitable contact and contactless smart card with special printing, holograms and microdots. Deployed over 225,000 smart cards that were used by NYPD, FDNY, Paramedics, NY Law, and other personnel to provide access to buildings, special rooms, elevators, computers, databases, secured areas, etc. depending upon the person’s credentials (rights, roles, privileges and permissions) and their biometrics embedded in the smart token.
SAVED US TREASURY $53.2 MILLION IN FIRST YEAR
2000 – Funge Systems – Los Angeles, CA & Washington D.C.
Designed and oversaw the development of the “original” electronic purse to embed in a smart card for conducting electronic commerce. Presented e-purse to U.S. Treasury and U.S. Navy for elimination of two problems – 1) keeping real cash in the bank versus floating around in the ocean on one of the Navy’s ships drawing no interest, and 2) putting sailors back to their trained positions as opposed to collecting quarters out of the vending machines, counting, rolling and turning into the Distribution Officer. Secured US Treasury, US Navy, US Marines, SPA-WARS, NSA, Chase and other agencies approvals. Deployed as the Navy Cash™ and Marine Cash℠ systems turning the ships into cashless vessels by using virtual, auditable money on board. Saved, per the U.S. Treasury, over $53.2 million in lost interest alone in the first year and returned the sailors to the jobs they trained for as the ships used virtual money (no more quarters). The U.S. Navy Secretary declared the program as the most successful program in Navy history and ordered fleet wide rollout (186 ships). Built a team of 12 plus global partners to deliver the integrated solution.
NSA APPROVED - PRE-BOOT COMPUTER SECURITY
1990 – Digital Privacy – Eden Prairie, MN
Smart Card System / Application Developer. Designed, developed, and obtained three “method and apparatus” international patents (protected in 72 countries) with multiple patents pending for the SecureDESK™ product. This product was designed to control the operating system – PRE-BOOT. Converted, by installing a smart card reader and a special military grade board (with destruction capabilities) inside, an ordinary PC (regardless of brand) into a National Security Agency (NSA) approved PC that provided the safe within a safe within a safe required protection. The SecureDESK controlled the OS, all ports, addresses, hard disk, etc., and the only way for the PC to work was through use of a smart card containing proper credentials. All information on the hard disk, including the OS, was encrypted according to 3DES standards. Provided 2 to the 64th power of sign-on keys and 2 to the 64th power of access level keys. The director of NSA had his InfoSec and International groups evaluate, and based upon their recommendations, provided a waiver to allow government agencies and military use despite the design was not completed in accordance to their “Orange Book”. Global Patents #5327,497 / #5,515,440 / #5,610,981 issued in 1992, 1994, 1996 respectively.

Used components of this technology for Secret Service drug trafficking applications.
NEGOTIATED WITH BILL GATES
1980 – CPT, Minneapolis, MN
CPT was the number one manufacturer of “Word Processing” equipment and generated a profit for 39 consecutive quarters.

Flew to Seattle and met with Bill Gates and negotiated a contract for MS-DOS, the Basic programming language and Excel spreadsheet – with options for other ongoing applications. Worked with engineering to develop what we called “COMPUPAK” – data processing functionality for the otherwise sole word processor. Launched a marketing campaign with the Regional Managers promoting our unique Value-add. Sold, in the first year, an additional $11.2 million of CPT word processors and $2.4 million in application software due to the added value. Maintained our number one position in the marketplace.
