    CV

    Summary: I have 15 years of NASA systems engineering experience with the International Space Station Program, with international partners and future spacecraft projects. 

    My career has been centered on developing complex, international, multi-stakeholder engineering and technical management processes where they do not exist or refining existing, inefficient processes towards optimization.

    Experience

    Professor, Concordia University Texas (Lutheran) Doctorate Student, Concordia University Chicago (Lutheran)

    September 2010 to Present

    Professor of upper level, undergraduate courses in the School of Business; Critical Thinking, Industrial Operations and Strategic Management focused specifically on business process optimization (2010/11 school year).  I am currently a doctorate student with Concordia University Chicago (Lutheran) working towards an Ed.D. in organizational development focused on technical process re-engineering.

    Associate

    Booz Allen Hamilton Inc

    Constellation Orion Program Office

    February 2008 to September 2010

    Hired by NASA to act on its behalf as liaison between multiple NASA organizations and external contractors to gather, represent or develop required operations data in support of the Orion Software and Avionics Preliminary Design Review (PDR).

    Results: I worked with a small team to develop a new technical change process to enable the review of 2000+ engineering requirements for the Orion Software and Avionics team.  Led internal NASA reviews for requirements validity then presented requirements documents to Lockheed and facilitated their internal review.  Where needed, engineering contingency plans, collaboration efforts and priorities were developed to address failed or at-risk requirements.  I received a NASA Achievement Award for the successful management of the Orion PDR.

    Project Leader

    United Space Alliance (USA)

    Human Spaceflight Exploration Technologies Research and Development

    June 2004 to 2008

    Manager of three, multi-million dollar Independent Research and Development (IR&D) business process re-engineering projects for USA’s Strategic Technology Initiatives organization.

    Results: USA owned its first intellectual property in the form of my software tool suite which was designed to streamline mission operations from the current, 20 people/2 weeks to build 1 day’s worth of plans for ISS to 1 person/20 minutes (resulting in a cost savings of millions over the lifetime of a program while enabling increased autonomy for the in-situ astronaut crew.)  I successfully led cooperative efforts with NASA headquarters and other NASA field centers, major aerospace industry teams and small aerospace companies in the development.  All project planning, cost estimating, legal terms and conditions, product purchase cost negotiations and reporting in earned value were delivered on time and on schedule. Received a US Patent for the software.

    NASA Flight Controller

    United Space Alliance

    International Space Station (ISS) Mission Control Center (MCC)

    January 1999 to June 2005

    Certified Ops Planner within the Mission Operations Directorate, Operations Division responsible for integrating, developing, generating and uplinking all technical plans & procedures for the ISS crew.

    Results: As the technical liaison to Russia, I developed a new real-time, international planning and replaning change management process to manage daily orbital operations.  That process included defining real-time integration efforts between the ISS crew, MCC systems disciplines, the Increment Management Team (IMT) the Mission Evaluation team (MER), the engineering community, the science community, the medical community and the international partners (despite the non-uniform data standards, software incompatibility and mis-matched computer networks.)  5000 hours were spent on console supporting Expeditions 1-10 refining the process.  I also developed all training material for future Ops Plan candidates. 

    Technical Operatiosn Staff

    United Space Alliance

    Shuttle-Mir Phase I/ISS Program Office (ISSPO)

    April 1998 to January 1999

    I was in charge of developing, negotiating and managing a NASA/Russian integrated ISS crew provisioning process with lessons learned from Phase I before the ISS First Element Launch.

    Results: A new provisioning definition and change management process was designed for the ISSPO with concurrence from NASA’s Life Science Division and the Russian Institute for Bio-Medical Problems (IBMP). The change management process took into account astronaut/cosmonaut provisions selection, payload mass and volume analysis, issues securing NASA and Russian manifest allocations, Shuttle and Progress vehicle payload negotiations, and procurement then shipping oversight to Kennedy Space Center and to RSC-Energia/Baikonour in Moscow.

    Strategic Planning Specialist

    Science Applications International Corp (SAIC)

    June 1996 to April 1998

    Worked with the NASA Johnson Space Center’s financial organization on a business process re-engineering project aimed at unifying all NASA centers reporting capabilities.

    Education

    Master of Aeronautic Science, Operations - 2000

    Specialized in space operations including engineering management, spacecraft development, launch operations and remote sensing. Graduate thesis was developed in cooperation with NASA Mission Operations Directorate (MOD) management to identify the engineering operational issues facing MOD as the ISS was assembled, operated and eventually decommissioned.

    University of Houston

    Master of Science, Future Studies/Strategic Planning – 1996

    Specialized in long range strategic planning, numerical model analysis, and systems engineering design. Graduate thesis involved working closely with the NASA Engineering Directorate to negotiate new organizational adaptations in order to facilitate long range planning for the NASA administration.

    Concordia University-Austin

    Bachelor of Arts, Business Communications - 1995

    Specialized in technical writing, organizational development and diffusion of innovation.
