About Me

I am the coordinator for the specialization in Telecommunications Management Technology (TMT).

I have over 14 years of full time and consulting experience from companies such as Bell Lab, Lucent, Allied Signals, and Harris Corporation.  I have worked in positions as senior engineer, project manager, product developer, system integrator, and system tester. Additionally, I have also worked in similar positions that have included a position as a technical staff member.

Currently, I have received a number of awards for my contributions to the engineering industry.
