I have 40+ years of experience in operations-centric software, real-time data and knowledge solutions, data, knowledge and critical path innovation. I'm a contributing author for energy industry and computer science magazines and teaches at Lone Star College.
I am an engineer, innovator, team builder, and shepherd. My life-long learning philosophy is anticipation; my project approach philosophy is innovation; my team leadership philosophy is collaboration.
Projects which I lead are based on robust, reliable, resilient, and reproducible solutions. I approach knowledge engineering as data engineering – real-time tactical analytics, after-the-fact forensic analytics, and pre-project predictive analytics.
My management approach is the collaborative and cross-discipline concepts based on the 5th Discipline / Learning Organizations; the team pulls energy and excitement from the project. My team building philosophy is “the best team member is the one that can work anywhere, but chooses to work here”
I began developing military avionics systems for General Dynamics and Sikorsky Aircraft. Since 1990, I have been developing Systems and Applications for the Energy Industry including integrated information systems, systems analytics, real-time processing, and operations management. Teams I have led have included small and agile systems groups, interdisciplinary mission avionics groups, and industry leading proactive predictive analytics, case based reasoning, and data mining.
I'm a contributing leader in public conferences as an Applied System Engineer and Machine Learning Architect. I am a contributing author for energy industry and computer science magazines, speaker at industry conferences, and Professor of Computer Science at Lone Star College.
Currently, I am the Senior Solutions Architect at Southwestern Energy where I work in the Business Application Services group and specializes in Upstream Exploration and Production. In this position, I pull my experiences in data processing, data analysis, and data presentation to improve Southwestern Energy’s work in the natural gas production and mid-stream market.
