A veteran technology professional with experience managing operations teams for large websites, building a security team, leading PCI-DSS and SOX compliance, overseeing data center consolidations and migrations, planning and tracking IT budgets, and architecting large network infrastructures.

SecureSet, Denver, CO 2018 - 2020 Adjunct Instructor: I worked as a part-time, seasonal contract adjunct instructor teaching network security fundamentals. Taught both in-person and online classes with two different cohorts of students, one group has a technical background that want to focus specifically on security and a second group with no technical background that want to break into technical job fields. Built customized class material, lectured, supported students for lab work and oversaw testing to quantify learning. Worked with other instructors to collaborate on teaching skills and stepped in as a substitute for other classes when appropriate. Taught: HomeAdvisor, Golden, CO 2012 - 2017 Director, Technical Operations: I managed the operations team responsible for all the equipment running the HomeAdvisor website, as well the multi-site WAN/LAN network infrastructure for the entire company. I oversaw massive infrastructure upgrades and implementation of new technology during a time of explosive growth that resulted in an order of magnitude growth in revenue. I balanced multiple simultaneous priorities including improving stability, increasing scalability, dramatically tightening security, adopting exciting new technologies and processes, uplifting legacy equipment and planning for disaster recovery. In addition to managing a highly technical team of engineers I also managed multiple external vendors, calculated the Operations team's annual capital budget and was the IT compliance officer for PCI-DSS and SOX for the entire Technology organization.
