Capitalizing on a successful Fortune 500 background with Verizon and MCI and VCE, I am currently searching for new and equally challenging opportunities in a pre-sales technical lead role.

My knowledge and experience equate to a range of significant responsibilities as in IT Operations, IT Infrastructure Management/Vision and successful Pre-Sales Role. My work includes infrastructure design and development, systems and database architecture, enterprise management, IT strategy and large scale integrations as it relates to internal IT and from a vendor perspective in a sales/pre-sales role. Among my many achievements is being appointed to the first ever enterprise architecture organization at MCI, and being put in charge of all major data centers’ strategic infrastructure direction and process to request and fulfill that demand.I am a natural leader and team builder, with an ability to manage and motivate personnel to new levels of productivity.


Pioneering career using cutting edge technology and employing “hands-on” IT and infrastructure / architecture expertise.  Emerged as a leader from data center operations in a regional telecommunication’s facility, to Sr. Manager over a team that established an IT infrastructure organization focused on true requirements and long/short term cost saving solutions without sacrificing process innovation and/or a strategic long/short term plans.

Major Achievements

  • Appointed to first ever MCI Enterprise Architecture organization and put in charge of all major Data Center's Requirements for new Infrastructure
  • Created MCI Utility Information Services Framework, including web/database/application farms
  • Formulated and executed a plan to consolidate 15 MCI call centers into 6

Appointed to create first ever MCI Enterprise Architecture organization in charge of all major Data Centers.  MCI merged with WorldCom which had incorporated over 30 companies with separate networks and infrastructures into one loosely managed global IT organization.  This created the need for a global enterprise architecture organization that would act as a filtering device for new IT infrastructure acquisitions.  Played key role in building new processes, SLAs, infrastructures, and reducing servers from 33,000 to 13,000.  Completed all tasks within time and budget guidelines, and achieved all enterprise objectives.Created the MCI utility information services framework, including web / database and application farms.  New processes put in place by the MCI enterprise organization led to the need for an Utility Computing-type of services approach to infrastructure, rather than the silo request for resources used in the past.  Implemented the processes and mechanisms needed and saved over $20M/year in the last 3 years. Savings were achieved from software / hardware procurement avoidance, decommissioning of older gear, and creating optimum resource utilization across the enterprise. Formulated and executed plan, successfully consolidating the IT infrastructure of 15 MCI call centers into six.  While Manager of the Open VMS team, charged with finding new methods to reduce costs.  At the time, MCI had 15 telemarketing call centers across the country.  Conceived plan to collapse all 15 sites’ infrastructures into six sites without losing any productivity.  Achieved objective in 18 months, ahead of schedule and budget guidelines.  Created substantial savings across entire MCI organization.
