Summary: Please allow me to speak candidly for a moment. I have built and patented some incredible technologies, and still have several more within me. If you are the type of employer who needs someone like me, then you can imagine the things I cannot discuss because of confidentiality agreements. I am very good at what I do. If you want to build something not yet possible, and have received this CV, there is a high probability I can help, and we should speak. Right this second, I maintain the operational capability to set up a secure mobile autonomous network, anywhere on the face of the planet via portable satellite uplink, an E- commerce front end complete with billing and user management systems, and the ability to live stream multi-sourced content to over 5 million people; and that’s just for fun! Imagine what we can build together... I look forward to sitting down and discussing it in person... Testimonial: The Anti-Network Terrorism system (commercially available as ProDefense) by Cyber Operation has provided an essential link in the quick response time requirement to modify the Department of Defense’s Information Systems Agency, Internet Access Point security policy. John’s team has been extremely responsive to the unique requirements of the DOD, and have modified their ProDefense DDOS tool suite to meet Information Assurance Vulnerability Assessment

(IAVA) and DISA Security Technical Integration Guide (STIG) compliance. John’s team training and hands on support during the pilot, their speedy and error free modifications to their tool to meet operational processes, not only won the DISA Pacific Theatre Tier II, Internet Router Analyst’s respect as system engineers, but also improved the first line operations personnel response time for deployment of ACL/Firewall filters. To quote one of the operations staff at DISA PAC, “You will only take this tool from our cold dead hands!”

John’s team has provided additional one-on-one training as operational staff has deployed, and have been very responsive to keeping the DOD involved in all updates to their tools. The A.N.T tool is almost a GOTS (Government off the Shelf) tool instead of a COTS (Commercial off the Shelf) because they have been so responsive to our needs. Without this tool, manual processes are required to deploy ACL/Firewall Filters on the DOD networks. Networks that do not currently have the A.N.T. tool take between 8-12 hours to deploy ACL/Filters, with inadvertent dropping of all filters during updates allowing unauthorized traffic access to critical DOD resources. The A.N.T. tool allows the DOD to respond in minutes to malicious traffic and also enforces the correct DISA ACL/Filter deployment process.
