Engineering Director/Chief Engineer/Engineering Fellow with longstanding experience leading the design and development of complex embedded systems, software applications, RF, cryptography, and digital hardware. I’ve defined and deployed strategies focused on the effective launch and management of highly visible, challenging, and successful product developments for sophisticated systems. As a proven quick learning multifunctional engineering leader with a demonstrated ability for developing influence and credibility with key stakeholders and acting as a strategic change agent, I am qualified for leading organizations through the most challenging product developments. My years of experience span functional management, technical management, RF and Digital design, digital signal processing, cryptography, multi dimensional signal processing, proposal development, open standards, system architecture, requirements development across subsystems, hardware, gateware, firmware, and software, design, unit test, and system verification.
I am qualified to develop and lead product roadmaps for complex multi-disciplined product areas.
