I started over 22 years ago writing programs for science and business applications. Since then I have designed, built and
operated networks, managed a data center, lead multi-scaled geographically dispersed projects, implemented service architectures,
and provided technology forecasting.
I joined NASA as a civil servant 15 years ago. For the last 8 years, I have had the responsibility for introducing new technologies
into the NASA Headquarters computing environment and for integrating the Headquarters IT infrastructure and services with
other NASA centers and partners. I serve as the lead for the Headquarters IT Strategic and Tactical plans which set goals
and provide integrated planning for NASA Headquarters IT services. But most importantly, I am a service provider.
My NASA responsibilities include planning and coordination of IT projects, budget formulation, integrated schedule & design
assurance, policy compliance and chairmanship of the local Configuration Control Board. There is also a significant amount
of Agency Working Group Support.
