I have been Chief Architect for the US Army Reserve, United States National Datacenter, the US’ only nuclear treaty monitoring group (AFTAC), Coca-Cola’s Global Business Intelligence group, Deloitte, Ingram Entertainment, and HCA. I have served as board co-chair of the US National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Big Data Working Group’s subgroup on Big Data Reference Architecture. I’ve have led Architecture as a business development strategy for several large Defense integrators and in partnership with EMC and Microsoft.
From a skills perspective, I am capable in natural language processing, machine learning, data warehousing, OLAP, Big Data/VLDB, and scalable architectures. I code in Java, C#, C++, and Assembler (when necessary). I have programmed in all mainstream programming languages in the last 17 years, adapting to the technical needs of my customers. This site (www.augmentedintel.com) contains architecture, leadership, strategy, and technical examples of my work.
I received a BS, Geology from Middle Tennessee State University in 1997 and an MBA from Northcentral University with specialization in Management of Engineering in 2005. I have a Project Management Professional certification (#318862, granted Feb 2006), and several vendor-specific certifications.
