Work History

Work History
Jul 2014 - Present

Systems Engineer Sr

Lockheed Martin - Enterprise Business Services
  • Lead and facilitate technical exchange meetings (TEMs) with customers and stakeholders. Understand the current technical configuration, interpret IT service catalog offerings (UNIX, Windows, IIS, Cold Fusion, Oracle, and SQL), order services, develop migration design approach and schedule migrations.

  • Develop and document system architecture, including relevant use cases, create the operations and system integration plan, and draft end-to-end architecture drawings
  • Determine the most appropriate migration method such as a virtual to virtual (V2V), physical to virtual (P2V), lift and ship or new build. Present technical design, cost, and schedule during System Design Review (SDR).

Jul 2009 - Jul 2014

Project Engineer

Lockheed Martin - Facilities Development and Operation Contract
  • Led the design, development, and implementation on a highly integrated software development project involving customers and engineers from multiple contracts and NASA centers including NASA/Ames, NASA/Johnson Space Center, Lockheed Martin, Analytical Graphics Inc, Barrios Technology, and United Space Alliance. This tool simplified a manually intensive process requiring several days to complete down to an automated 3 hours process. Implementation of this tool resulted $700K cost savings for NASA.
  • Integrated Planning Team (IPT) lead on a NASA user application (~300 applications) project to consolidate, upgrade, and re-host COTS/GOTS applications to a service-oriented architecture (SOA).
  • Coordinated technical issues, vendor contacts, design package preparation, cost preparation, feasibility studies, and integration of various hardware and software technologies into a single cost effective customer solution.
  • Liaison between subcontractors, COTS vendors, and the NASA customer to ensure logical and systematic conversion of customer or product requirements into total systems solutions that acknowledge technical, schedule, and cost constraints.
  • Conducted regular Technical Interchange meetings with the NASA customer representatives to adequately capture customer requirements, produce Basis of Estimates (BOEs), and project timeline planning.
  • Performed Systems Engineering analysis at all levels of total system product to include: concept, design, fabrication, test, installation, operation, maintenance and disposal.
  • Cost Account Manager Delegate on the user applications software account.
Nov 2007 - Jul 2009

Systems Engineer

Lockheed Martin - Mission Support Operations Contract
  • Coordinated NASA-specific Support Requirements (SRs) from customer scope definition to project implementation/integration. Typical workload of 2-5 concurrent projects (~$300K ea), with ~$2-3M in engineering services and material procurements processed annually.
  • Led a team in performing a competitive trade study for selection and implementing new hardware and software for the Johnson Space Center and its supporting network infrastructure.
  • Coordinated and led a Structured Improvement Activity (SIA) on behalf of the Chief Engineer’s office, which identified a 75% improvement in processing of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) approval request.
  • Provided Systems and Project Engineering leadership to the redesign and relocation of the International Space Station (ISS) Flight Control room facility including all IT Services and Resources. This project led to Lockheed Martin receiving the George M. Low Award for exceptional performance.  
  • Managed and maintained the systems and requirements associated with multiple Mission Control Center subsystems.
Jul 2002 - Jul 2007

Petty Officer Second Class/Air Traffic Controller

US Navy
    • Supervised the Amphibious Air Traffic Control Center aboard the USS Peleliu during a 6-month deployment in the Persian Gulf. Led a Mobile Marine Team (MMT) on Al Asad Airbase Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation Enduring Freedom.
    • Oversaw daily air traffic control operations at Naval Air Station Corpus Christi. FAA Certified Control Tower Operator.
    • Performed systems testing on the FAA Enhanced Terminal Voice Switches/Interim Voice Switch Replacement (ETVS/IVSR) project.
