In July 2013 I retired as a program executive with Raytheon. 

From 2006-2012 I was the program director of Raytheon Polar Services, supporting the National Science Foundation’s U.S. Antarctic program.  Polar Services provided operations, construction, and facilities maintenance and science support at three stations, and aboard two research vessels in Antarctica.  I managed 400 full-time staff and over 2,000 seasonal contract employees each year, coordinating offices on three continents to manage the requirements of a 12-year contract valued at over $1.9 billion.

During my tenure, the new South Pole Station was constructed at the end of a 10,000-mile long logistics chain, within budget, and on time in the world’s coldest, harshest, and most remote environment on earth.

My last 12 months at Raytheon before retiring was in a business development role as a director project management /planning operations for the company’s infrastructure and operations.

My previous program management experience include general manager of a joint American-Canadian company based in Ottawa, Canada, providing base construction, operations, and maintenance support to the Canadian Defence Forces serving overseas in Bosnia and Afghanistan.  I was also a business systems manager for DISH Network in Denver, CO, director of logistics for U.S. Antarctic Support Associates in Denver, where I played a key role in transitioning the Antarctic program from predominately military support to civilian support, Proposal Manager in Orange, CA, Project Site Manager in Izmir and Istanbul, Turkey, and Special Project Manager on a Department of Energy contract in Hawaii and the Marshall Islands.

I received a bachelor of science in business administration from Wesleyan and graduated from the Naval Aviation Schools command as an officer receiving a designation as a naval aviator.  I spent 11 years on active duty, including a decorated one-year tour as a combat helicopter pilot in Vietnam.
