Employed by the U.S. Navy as a Civilian Electrical Engineer/Customer Advocate for 33 years. The first 6.5 years were spent working at Norfolk Naval Shipyard focused on electrical power generation and distribution for large ships (i.e. Aircraft Carriers, Amphibious Vessels and Nuclear Cruisers). The remainder of service was with the Combatant Craft Division (CCD) of the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Carderock Division, Norfolk Detachment. Initial employment was for the development of acquisition electrical specifications for vessels and then the subsequent source selection and construction/testing oversight of those vessels. Significant vessel acquisition involvement included: the Navy 170' Coastal Patrol Boat; the Mark V SOC; the Army 60' Small Tug; the Army 115 Ton Barge Derrick (Lead Engineer); and the Army 324' Logistic Support Vessel. In addition I was involved in various other small craft procurement and vessel modifications. In December of 1999 I was designated as the single point of contact for all Army watercraft efforts which evolved into the Customer Advocate Position overseeing all Army work with the Carderock Division which grew to approximately $40 million annually. In February of 2012 transitioned to performing only engineering duties.
