Key Accomplishments

Started an online retail business (sporting goods) at age 21 (2002), leveraging early stage Internet e-commerce and multiple supply chain relationships to buy in Chinese markets and sell in US markets. Wanted to grow and sell business, just not polished enough as an entrepreneur at the time. Great experience!

Delivered and executed an operational improvement plan to Lockheed Martin's Engineering business that resulted in savings of nearly $10m (2006).

First person in my family history to complete graduate level education (2009).

Survived contracting post in Afghanistan (2011-2012).

Delivered complex technical solution to the Internal Revenue Service while a consultant for Booz Allen Hamilton (2013).

Identified need for, designed and implemented Booz Allen's first ever business division, Booz Allen Technical Support, a vastly different business, people and cost model, so that the firm could compete more effectively in its Defense markets. Resulted in $1bn in real market opportunities (2013-2014).

Developed an enterprise level web application called The PIT (pit.bah.com) to centralize Booz Allen's wide range of technology solutions - products and managed services included (2015-2016).

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Open communication, impervious to criticism, whatever it takes to push forward and grow an idea, focus on strengths but flexibility to infinite hats as necessary.
