    I was employed by Grove Resources Solutions Inc. (GSRi) to close the Radiation Belt Storm Probes (RBSP) program under Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory. My primary experience is with Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company as a Senior Hardware Engineer. I started work at Lockheed Missiles & Space on the D5, Trident II development Program as a Parts Engineer. This development included evaluating design requirements imposed on the Harris design teams in the form of Source Control Drawings (SCD's). As development progressed, these SCD's were revised to implement design changes. My technical responsibilities included testing parts received in both the development manufacturing phases of the D5 Program. In cases of failure analysis, I used both my knowledge of the application and the IC design to determine the failure causes. My technical responsibilities included testing parts received in both the development manufacturing phases of the D5 Program. In cases of failure analysis, I used both my knowledge of the application and the IC design to determine the failure causes. There were cases where test limits had to be relaxed resulting in a SCD revision. My responsibility then shifted to technically justifying the relaxed test limits by proving that the change would not impact the reliability and performance over the mission life of the system.

    After the successful development and progression into manufacturing, I moved from the Sunnyvale Missiles & Space division to the Palo Alto Advanced Technology Center where I worked on three NASA programs. This experience in development, testing and procurement laid a firm foundation for the transfer to the Palo Alto Advances Technology Center. I used this SCD experience in parts selection for the NASA programs. I also used my procurement sources that I developed to meet the immediate delivery schedule imposed by the contract. I returned to the Sunnyvale facility where I was the Parts Engineer for the Airborne Laser Program (ABL), Mobile User Objective System (MUOS), and the P734 Program. I’m also chaired the Anomaly Event Review Board (AERB) that oversaw Parts Materials and Processes (PMP) item reviews that are introduced by actual or potential anomalous conditions concerning PMP.

    My technical experience in design development and failure analysis combined with procurement experience qualifies me for the Applications Engineer. I look forward to discussing my specific experience in an interview.



    Extensive electrical engineering background, including evaluation and implementation of design requirements. Experienced in hardware and software test and analysis to determine reliability and verify performance over component and system life cycle. Also experienced in failure investigation and analysis of data required to determine root cause. A self-starter with demonstrated willingness to accept new responsibilities. Currently hold DoD Secret Clearance.
