2006 - 2006
“The Digital Universe aims to be the definitive repository of human knowledge online.” At the DUF I worked with major scientific organizations and universities to create next generation vetted internet content. As the liaison between universities, institutions and the DUF, I evangelized the ideas and solutions we developed through public speaking at conferences and events. We developed Semantic Web strategies and helped design and evolve the Digital Universe from a customized Mozilla browser to a browser independent platform using Dojo Ajax framework and a customized Media Wiki implementation called the Encyclopedia of Earth. I participated in the development of 3D data visualization of information data sets overlaid onto the earth and other planets displayed within the Mozilla browser.
2004 - 2006
Worked with software group to bring data sets into PostgreSQL as well as designing and implementing a creative asset management strategy using open source solutions. Worked with Sr. Architects to devise portal development structures for integrating stewarding tools in XUL, Java Script, PHP and other web languages. Worked on meta data strategies for the Digital Universe with our partner organizations using ISO and Dublin Core as frameworks, laid out RDF and OWL Semantic Web meta data structures.

SR. Network Engineer
I was the Sr. Network Engineer for an international company with 30 subsidiaries where my team modernized the network. I managed people on projects with large budgets in extremely high stress environments. I was responsible for entire corporate network including LAN, WAN, and Internet presence. I researched, proposed, and implemented new technologies as well as maintained legacy systems. On my recommendation we crafted solutions working with major vendors to implement large scale infrastructure overhaul for an antiquated network. During my tenure I worked with government agencies and major corporations on a litany of projects in the IT space. Through my experience in the military I developed a good understanding of the use of proper channels and the process of dealing with red tape.
