To provide advanced systems design, management and software service support to either government or commercial agencies. Additional objectives include completion of a master's degree in computer science and the acquisition of additional skills both on the job and in the community.

I am primarily interested in expanding my knowledge of the principles, practices, and techniques of computer programming and systems analysis and design, and all phases of software development and project management. To this objective I strive to:

  • Lead project teams and in organizing, directing and motivating staff to meet project goals and objectives.
  • Analyze problems and devise innovative and effective solutions, including collecting and analyzing complex data, evaluating information and processes, and drawing logical conclusions.

  • Understand the complex hierarchy of government and military organizations.

  • Design and develop complex computer systems and software.

  • Plan, organize and coordinate tasks to effectively meet frequent and/or multiple deadlines, in handling multiple tasks simultaneously, and in managing conflicting priorities and demands.

  • Perform detailed work with a high degree of accuracy.

  • Enhance verbal and written communication of complex technical information to people of varying technical backgrounds.
