    Professional Experience
    Serco NA (formerly SI International), Colorado Springs, CO, June 2003–October 2011
    Senior Enterprise Architect

    Developed integrated Enterprise Architectures consisting of Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF)-described Models (OVs, SVs, etc.). Employed object-oriented analysis and design methods, the Unified Modeling Language (UML), and Service Oriented Architecture Modeling Language (SoaML) to analyze and model future command and control (C2) business and systems requirements, and various Space Control requirements for the Space Control and Missile Defense communities. Expert in developing UML artifacts such as Use Case Diagrams, Activity Diagrams, Sequence Diagrams, Data Models, etc. Performed operations process analysis, with emphasis on requirements generation, acquisition, and command and control.

    Developed four separate Space Control architecture models and integrated all models into a single AFSPC Space Superiority architecture. The integration of all models assisted the customer to better see how each system contributed to the overall Space Control mission and thereby identified potential capability re-use for enhanced mission performance. Integration also permitted the re-use of architecture artifacts, thereby reducing additional/future architecture development time and effort by 30%.

    Task Lead for the European Midcourse Radar (EMR) project. Led the EMR architecture development with creation of the initial DoDAF Operational and System Views (OVs and SVs) in support of a Capabilities Development Document (CDD). OVs garnered praise on how accurately they captured the required operational behavior of the EMR system and the ease of how the architecture integrated with the larger Missile Defense Agency and Ballistic Missile Defense System architecture. Task was completed in a mere four months - just one quarter of the time normally required for a task of this magnitude.

    Member of the Combatant Commander’s Integrated Command and Control System (CCIC2S) architecture team. Managed all Space and Missile Warning architecture artifacts (use case diagrams, activity diagrams, data models, etc.) within the CCIC2S architecture. Identified, corrected, and updated over 80% of use case association and mission related functionality errors within the Space mission area resulting in a more accurate representation of USSTRATCOM requirements. Lauded by USSTRATCOM, AFSPC, and the developing contractor for improved requirements and systems functionality representation. CCIC2S architecture team awarded HQ AFSPC DR - Professional of the Month, Mar 2004.

    Developed a detailed operational architecture and Logical Data Model for the RAIDRS Block 10 and Block 20 architectures. Prime Contractor and development community praised the accuracy of the model, which reduced ambiguity when referencing and analyzing the architecture, and was applauded by the system contractor as 50% more useful for systems development than previous models.

    Lead architect in the development of the initial Space and Information Operations (IO) architecture. Guided the Space and IO Architecture Team in precisely depicting the necessary collaboration required among the Space and IO communities to integrate their systems and business processes for a specific effect. Architectural expertise was lauded by the task leader when the business process, along with the overarching data model presented an enhanced synergistic capability between the two mission areas. As a result, these two communities have an initial blueprint as to the necessary actions/coordination required to integrate two dissimilar communities to function as one.

    Key player in establishing an Enterprise Architecture department UML 2.0 training and certification program. Led 20+ training sessions that promoted research and discussions on new UML 2.0 concepts, and better prepared architects for the Object Management Group (OMG) UML Professional Certification exam. Architects consistently passed OMG certification tests with highest scores; one acing it with 100%. Received many compliments and thanks from co-workers and department heads on the organization and presentation of each lesson. Consistently selected to train and mentor new architects. Recognized numerous times by project leads on effectiveness to instill architectural standards and best practices to new trainees resulting in architects becoming qualified in 50% less time.

    USAF, HQ AFSPC, Peterson AFB, CO, December 2001–June 2003
    Superintendent, Long Term Requirements

    HQ AFSPC’s representative for a $100 million Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) micro-satellite (microsat) demonstration program. Determined and advised AFSPC leaders on operational requirements for future follow-on microsat systems. Interfaced with DOD, Joint Staff, Air Staff, Intelligence Agencies, Major Commands and the Space and Missile Systems Center on program issues during a significant funding reduction proposal and drafted a justification briefing for HQ senior staff identifying program needs and priorities, thereby rescuing program funds and program development. Program was saved, satellite was launched, demonstration proved a success.
