I am a seasoned IT professional with over twenty years of experience working in corporate, government, non-profit and education sectors throughout the Washington, DC metropolitan area. The reputation I built as a thought leader on technology integration, implementation and virtualization led me to be recruited to lead several ambitious IT initiatives at The Children’s School in Atlanta Georgia, and Flint Hill School in Oakton, Virginia. My task would be to establish a cutting edge technology infrastructure that would serve as a unique marketing asset for recruitment and retention. I believed these task to be opportunities that would serve as pinnacle challenges of my career. I was responsible for an excess of $25 million for implementing the dramatic changes necessary to upgrade out of date Network environment to compete on a standard on par with an Apple Lighthouse School. The transformation under my direction was repeatedly recognized by the school's leadership, faculty, Board of Trustees, and even the Washington Post "Two Schools of Thought: High -tech vs. No-tech. (http://www.flinthill.org/podium/default.aspx?t=204&id=582236).I have collaborate on projects with industry leaders such as Michael J. Cavanaugh. I severed as a meteorologist providing weather messages for the United States Department of the Army during Desert Storm. I was presented the Service Award from the United States Senate for Technology service and support during 911. My accomplishments earned me speaking engagements on best practices and positions on local advisory boards from peers in the region. I even had the distinct honor of presenting my thoughts on future challenges and opportunities in educational technology before the Congressional Black Caucus.
