Work History
07/2020 to Current
Network Architect (Department of State) Fox Corporation Home Office, CA,
  • Spearheaded and led major network installation and upgrade project to include deployment of new Cisco WLC, and Cisco ISE 2.7. New features provided organization with new wireless captive portal for guest user registration using Cisco ISE for BYOD and 802.1x certificate based authentication for enterprise devices closing various security issues with previously dated solutions.
  • Deployed Cisco Prime Infrastructure 3.8 and configured all network devices including ASA's, switches, and routers providing enterprise unified dashboard for wired and wireless monitoring which increased daily efficiency of day to day network operations.
  • Mitigated risk by analyzing complex computer systems to assess vulnerabilities providing robust routing solutions VPN's, OSPF and BGP routing protocols their by simplifying network design, and providing scalability to future design.
  • Troubleshot and maintained all networking devices and infrastructure across enterprise including switches, routers, firewalls, and VMware environment.
01/2020 to 06/2020
Network Virtualization Engineer (USCG) Atlas Technologies Inc. City, STATE,
  • Managed and monitored all installed systems for highest level of availability in USCG virtualization environment including multiple ESXI clusters & datacenter, VCenter 6.0, 6.5, Horizon View.
  • Monitored and tested application performance to identify potential bottlenecks, develop solutions, and collaborate with developers on solution implementation to optimize Virtual Desktop Environment (VDI) including deployment of multiple Unified Access Gateway across different geolocated POP's, and provided route design consultation for internal and external network design element surrounding VDI and VCenter environment.
  • Worked closely with customers, internal staff and other stakeholders to determine planning, implementation and integration of system-oriented projects to include deployment transition of VDI Environment and relevance to existing NIPRNET circuit design and impact to migration to JRSS circuit path.
  • Used critical thinking to break down problems, evaluate solutions and make decisions.
02/2016 to 12/2019
Lead Network Engineer/Architect (USCG) Ishpi Information Technology City, STATE,
  • Development and implementation of transition plan for existing static tunneling architecture incorporating multiple point to point tunnels into smallest number of DMVPN domains across 1000 sites using multiple disconnected MPLS carriers to include multi-VRF solution using MP-BGP. Solution provided simplification of tunneling from original VRF-lite solution, and providing future proof design for additional scalability
  • Routing architecture redesign to including fail-over to utilize multiple POP's and load balancing based on circuit bandwidth and availability, which includes backward compatibility to legacy design POP and also future proof route design for JRSS utilization
  • Design of Virtual Port Channels (VPC) on Nexus NXOS and integration with data center ESXI Link Aggregation Groups (LAG) for additional redundancy and fail over efficiency
  • Implemented Two-Factor Authentication for both SIPRNET and NIPRNET network devices totaling approximately 5000 managed devices utilizing Cisco Access Control Secure (ACS) and RSA SecurID, which allowed customer to close security gaps from simplified local login
  • Designed Cisco ACS Server and SecurID policies to separate and limit privileges in ordnance with USCG cyber security requirements to effectively meet reporting requirements for privileged users within network environment
  • Transitioned customer from legacy Cisco LAN Management System to regionally distributed Cisco Prime Infrastructure (CPI) architecture. New functionality within CPI allowed expansion of network automation by expanding scope of users capable of using management tool. Additionally designed and implemented using CPI network device configuration auditing capabilities based on Defense Information System Agency (DISA) security technical implementation guides (STIGs)
  • Created multiple automation scripts for LAN/WAN management using Cisco Prime Infrastructure API and PowerShell thereby saving countless man hours
  • Conducted periodic DISA STIG review and hardening of devices within network to include L2/L3 OSI model devices to ensure continued compliance with USCG environment
  • Managed number of projects from infancy to full scale deployment which included meeting with various stakeholders at different technical levels, extracting requirements, and designing schedules with milestones
