Originally I am from Maine, joined the Army and served 22 years as an Armor crewman on a M1A1 Abrams tank. I was stationed in many locations around the U.S., Europe, and Korea until I retired in 2004. I worked the last two years of my Army career in the Director of Information Management (DOIM) Information Assurance division doing network security. I did vulnerability assessments, designed, implemented, configured, and monitored a state of the art network defense system. After retiring I continued to work at Ft Carson in the Information Assurance division doing the same activities. I worked at Verizon business as a systems engineer/ analyst/architect in the Security Solutions Group. I was responsible for requirement assessment, analysis and management of enterprise security product development. I provide architectural analysis and design to support assigned projects, development of system architecture and design plans to implement solutions. I also do analysis of business requirements and functional requirements to create specific system requirements for development and provide project management as need to support assigned projects.
