Experienced program executive with over ten years experience managing complex programs in engineering, social impacts and the environment. I owned and managed a low voltage internet of things company for 14 years by growing accounts in the public and private sector. I also enjoyed working as a cost controls engineer for multi-year mining projects as well as a statistician for oil and gas. I also did applied research for the prevention of youth violence at the local and state level.

RkM Technologies, Inc

RkM prided itself on knowing information technology is part of a business but does not drive business. RkM finds innovative ways to support clients' customers. This may involve RkM's expertise in: #cost controls, #document controls, #scheduling, #contract management, and #network design for strategic business operations.

As a Statistical Analyst for Gilbarco Veeder-Root

Colorado Governor's Community Partnership Office
Denver Urban Resource Partnership and Aurora Youth Initiative
Nov 1991 - Oct 1994 (3 yrs)
Urban Greening Project coordinated by Colorado State Forest Service designed to connect Denver Youth with Federal and State scientists in experiential learning projects to improve urban wetlands, forests and habitat for the living ecosystem we know as Denver, Colorado. Federal funds from the US Departments of Agriculture and Interior paired with local contributions were distributed through a community based federally tracked food source and environmental education project. Denver arguably had the best projects in the nation based on US Inspector General Reviews as part of a nation wide deliverable analysis and appropriate cost-effectiveness. Success was largely due to the passion for nature and science in the Denver, CO community. A sample of my work at the City of Aurora is under projects. Evidence based human service violence prevention work was funded by US Department of Health and Human Services.
