Work Experiences

6/2000 - 10/2008


Individual Contributor

  • Provided detailed engineering and project management functions for large scale Synchronous Optical Network (SONET) additions and high bandwidth ethernet applications. Managed the deployment of Cisco routers, wireless access point nodes (APN), and firewalls necessary to support a WiFi network trial for the City of Henderson, NV. Deployed gigabit ethernet transport over a SONET network to provide a critical data link for hospitals in the Houston, TX metropolitan area. Established a 4 node RPR (Resilient Packet Ring) for a major customer and beat an extremely expedited time frame. Coordinated pre-engineering work with vendors and deployed multiple DWDM networks in Texas as well as Las Vegas, NV to greatly enhance data backhaul capacity. Successfully took over additional responsibilities previously held by 4 engineers as group size diminished due to downsizing while maintaining existing workload.Worked closely with database administrators to adapt a circuit database designed to track TDM traffic for use in monitoring bandwidth on DWDM and ATM data networks. Issued technical documents for each project detailing equipment placement, specifications, connectivity, and wiring standards. Issued job aids used by engineers both inside and outside of my department on various types of telecommunications equipment.

10/1998 - 6/2000


Individual Contributor

  • NOC Technical Analyst II Maintained special services circuits (DS1, DS0, ISDN, frame relay) for Sprint customers including government entities and other major telecommunications providers. Ranked at the top in terms of trouble tickets assigned and resolved. Isolated faults on critical circuits (FAA, 911) quickly and accurately minimizing outages. Effectively explained to customers circuit problems and coordinated technician dispatches based those discussions which reduced costly call outs as well as improved customer service. Worked several shifts with little or no direct supervision and routinely worked major outages due to thorough understanding of technical and procedural details.

5/1996 - 10/1998

Dash Computers

Individual Contributor

  • Assembled and performed quality assurance checks (to include troubleshooting to component level) and shipped small office telecommunications equipment. Boosted production after replacing a full time employee while also commuting and attending college full time. Reduced failure rate of devices by assisting engineers in researching circuit board designs resulting in improved products.

2/1993 - 2/1995

United States Air Force

Individual Contributor

  • Established and maintained high speed data links to remote satellite tracking stations in order to control government and civilian satellites such as the GPS constellation and surveillance satellites. Worked closely with GTE government contactors to complete acceptance testing on new switching systems and later became a trainer on these systems despite being the newest member of the team.

2/1991 - 2/1993

United States Air Force

Individual Contributor

  • Established and maintained critical high speed digital and analog links via satellites and HF ISB radio at remote locations to support military exercises and disaster relief efforts. Established circuits key to coordinating disaster recovery efforts after a typhoon caused significant damage on Guam.
