I have extensive experience working on the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) Space Shuttle system. The space program is coming to a transitional period between programs (Shuttle to Constellation), which is an opportunity for me to extend my options outside of KSC. I am willing to relocate out of state and travel. I look forward to new experiences, new people, and new learning opportunities.
Use combined education and extensive work experience to facilitate efficient implementation of company goals and to manage personnel
