Positions and Experience (Resume)

I am the Indiana University Information Technology Services Leveraged Services Sr. Security Engineer and posess (ISC)², SANS certifications and training, and CISSP security training.  In my current role I administer Symantec Encryption Server, Identity Finder, Qualys, Secunia, and Trend Micro Deep Security Manager.  These are systems I architected for our organization and implemented for our FERPA, PCI, SOX, and HIPPA requirements.  In addition my responsibilties include creating, reviewing, and implementing security modeling after NIST, NSA, Common Criteria, CIS, and other standards.
My past positions have included the Indiana University Lead Business Intelligence Architect and Indiana University Student Enrollment Services Manager of Technology Services and Indiana University Support Staff Supervisor.
I have in-depth knowledge and vast experiences with the security and compliance (PCI-DSS, HIPPA, SOX) process.  I also founded and facilitate many Users' Groups and have a strong management background leading teams responsible for application development, systems support, security, and infrastructure.  My project and people management experience and skills have afforded myself the opportunity to lead University adoption of SharePoint, Business Intelligence, Imaging, student systems, point-of-sales, and numerous other large projects.
In previous positions I managed technology professionals responsible for large and complex high visibility projects and services.  I promote collaborative engagements which foster innovative and dynamic approaches to problem solving, systems architecture, enterprise initiatives, and operations development. I like to think of myself as a visionary leader who brings about the best in individuals and a quick learner with a desire to participate in the long-term planning and collaborative leadership of large-scale information systems initiatives and implementations and see both the big and small picture.
I am a respected information manager with an in-depth knowledge of systems integrations, administrating technical infrastructure, application development and deployments systems, architecture design, and well versed in Agile (Scrum/KANBAN) project methodologies.  My progressive information systems management career has afforded myself an extensive familiarity with the principles of information system processes such as disaster recovery, change management, policy and governance, and technical administration and auditing. I have strong relations with Microsoft, Tableau, Identity Finder, Trend Micro, Symantec, and other colleagues and university constituents.  I am an effective learner and require little time to understand and comprehend new technologies and concepts.
