Software, architecture, development, SDLC, forensics, security, research, leadership
I've made a career working in many different areas of the information technology field. To name a few, I've spent time building networks, administering servers, designing software, writing and debugging software, process improvement initiatives, and auditing application security. There is always something new to learn. I've worked in corporate, education, and government sectors for large institutions, mid-sized companies, and start-ups, on projects ranging in size from the tens of thousands to the tens of millions of dollars in budget. Every one of these experiences teaches you something about who and what type of leader you are, what you are good at, and what you want to do with your professional life. In my time with the SEI, I've spent a lot of time working on research. My career as a researcher was not intentional, but it seems I'm 'ok' at it.
