Executive Summary

I am an Information Technology Executive with 32 years of experience working for Fortune 500 companies in the United States. I am a US Citizen and a devout follower of Jesus Christ.

Following my Bachelor of Science Studies for Computer Science in 1993, I have worked in Consulting, held jobs with the Government (Public Sector), Life Insurance, Transportation, Telecom, Stock Exchange / Finance, Healthcare, Manufacturing, and Hedge Fund / Asset Management verticals. This varied experience is what I believe has given me a tremendous overarching 50,000 foot view of Information Technology organizations and how they operate. My current role is that of a Solution Architect / Engineer for a Global Fortune 500 Vision care company. In 2019 I graduated from the International Business Management Institute with a Mini-MBA and in 2023 received a Certificate of Specialization in Leadership and Management from Harvard University (Harvard Business School Online)

In 2008 I fell into the world of politics quite by accident. While I have been gainfully employed in Information Technology for the past 32 years, I was unemployed for the first time during the recession of 2008 when nobody was hiring. I took this time to work under Brad Tusk (I) on the 2009 campaign of Michael Bloomberg (R) for Mayor of New York City where I learned the ins-and-outs of running a campaign, then went on to assist Chris Christie (R) on his campaign for Governor of New Jersey, then onto Virginia where I helped with Bob McDonell’s (R) campaign for Governor, onto Massachusetts to assist Scott Brown (R) for Senate, back up to Wisconsin to run a campaign office for Scott Walker for Governor (R) then to Illinois where I helped Bruce Rauner’s (R) campaign for Governor of Illinois, Joe Walsh (R), Bob Dold (R), Peter Roskam (R) and Randy Hultgren’s (R) campaigns for US Congress as well as Dan Rutherford’s (R) campaign for Treasurer of Illinois, Bill McLeod (I) for Mayor, Gary Pilafas (I) for Trustee, and so many more. Wherever I went, the campaign was victorious. I became known as a good luck charm for the Republican Party. I also supported Donald Trump (R) for President in 2016 and 2020.

In 2010, after a year and a half of being unemployed, I was once again gainfully employed at the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association where I was employed in Information Technology for the next four years (2010-2014) and then as an IT Manager at Zebra Technologies for the four years (2014-2018) after that. Thanks be to God, I have been gainfully employed ever since.

I lived a largely non-religious, secular life until 2007 when I accepted Christ as Lord and Savior. I attended several years of Bible classes under Moody Bible Institute professors and in 2009 was Baptized. Since 2007 I have never missed a Sunday Church Service or skipped a tithe. I work as hard as I possibly can to bring people to saving faith in Jesus. I am currently affiliated with three Churches, but have attended dozens. I have volunteered thousands of hours at various Churches, taught Bible Studies, preached from the pulpit, and in 2018 helped plant a Church campus in Mount Juliet, Tennessee. In 2011 I started an online Bible Study ministry called The Paul's Gospel which has rapidly grown to over 161  members. I am also a member of the Speaker’s Bureau at the C-Suite for Christ Ministry.

I am passionate about National Security and in the past have served in leadership roles affiliated with 3-letter national security agencies, and am currently a volunteer Executive Director at the non-profit American Vigilance PAC. I am also an NRA Certified Firearms Instructor and Range Safety Officer.

My Myers-Briggs personality type is : EXECUTIVE (ESTJ-T) as I am foremost a big picture person -- a technology executive with real world business experience and smarts, with credentials from Harvard Business School to back it up.
