Network Architecture and Engineering

I've spent over twenty-five years consulting, designing, engineering, building, and/or operating enterprise and carrier class voice and data networks.  In the process, I earned a Novell CNE (expired), and hold current Cisco CCDA and CCNA certificates, as well as being a Project Management Professional (PMP®).  Here are some past projects that I had particular fun with:

  • Led the engineering team for a state government frame relay to MPLS network migration of over 1300 sites
  • Design and Prototype of world's first Ship to Shore telephone service using a VoIP network and MMDS (Maritime Mobile Data Service) radios
  • Design and Development of an International least-cost call routing and pricing model and auto-provisioning tools for Nortel DMS 250/350 switches, for use by an international switched and VoIP carrier
  • Traffic and BGP route reconfiguration modeling for one of the nation's largest wholesale dialup providers
  • Design and Development of a secure network and operations environment for managing Patient Records data in a HPPA environment (firewalls, encryption, intrusion detection and foreign network interconnect model)
  • Development of a Managed VPN product offering for a large Telecom service provider, including specifications, provisioning process, deployment and configuration SOPs, and related documentation.
  • Consulted with Fluke Corporation on the specifications, pricing, and sales channel for the launch of their highly successful LANMeter line of handheld network analyzers.
  • Consulted with Nortel corporation on the development of their Optical Certification program.

Project Management

I'm a member of the Dayton Chapter of the Project Management Institute, and a certified PMP®, currently spending much of my time managing global network build and migration projects for Fortune 500 companies.

Technical References

Here are a few bits of information that I've put together over the years that others might find useful.

ISO 9001

A few years ago I was a key part of the team that earned ISO 9001:2000 compliance for the Managed Network Services division of a large telecom company.  In that role, I developed many of the procedures for our Design, Engineering, Installation, and Operations products, and performed compliance procedure audits for our certification and continuous improvement efforts.


It's been a while since I taught computer related courses at the college level, but more recently I've trained groups on network protocol analysis and various network technologies.  I'm most comfortable with workshop or short seminar formats.

Contract Work

I occasionally take on short term contract work between large projects, consulting on the design or expansion of a network for an organization that doesn't keep a network architect or senior network engineer on staff.


No, I'm not actively looking, but in today's short term contract world, things change quickly.  And, who knows if you're doing something interesting in the Dayton, Ohio area or have a project well suited to remote work, you might be able to twist my arm (but no, I won't move again!)  So, here's my current resume in MS Word and .PDF format.
