I am searching for a solid, professional company where challenging, cutting-edge, full-lifecycle projects are the norm and creativity and innovation are their employee's path to success. I look for opportunities to put my originality, creativity, and hunger for new technology and techniques to work. With my diverse experience–from top-rated 3D games to military and security projects, from embedded software development to GUI design–I bring with me a wide range of knowledge and expertise and a willingness to expand my professional horizons even further.

Interface & Control Systems

[Now: SRA International, Inc.]

Columbia, Md — 1996-2000

Participated in the development a real-time tactical communications system, Joint Combat Information Terminal (JCIT), a software-controlled and configured multi-mode radio with information security and message processing capabilities to support a field commander, using Clearcase for configuration management and the VxWorks operating system with embedded software running on a custom, modular, multi-processor platform; was responsible for task management, memory allocation, a scriptable state machine and data flow router, various audio and data converters, and communications security; coded to military specifications and tested for compatibility to existing hardware radios. Early in the development cycle, authored stopgap infrastructure and resource server systems that were critical to meeting early project milestones for the development and testing of JCIT that would otherwise have slipped without this capability. Responsible for simulating realistic combat messages (USMTF, AFAPD, and VMF) for ingestion by the Army Airborne Command and Control System (A2C2S) prototype, utilizing an industry standard simulation tool, ModSAF (Modular Semi-Automated Forces), to extract and re-format realistic simulated event data. Top Secret COMSEC clearance.
