He served as the chairperson for the Legacy Application Security Working Group; working with software developers and program owners to make their software compatible with NMCI desktops.
He then moved on to help Navy Medicine with their Certification and Accreditation of their backbone network. He has been with Navy Medicine (now dissolved and under Defense Health Agency) for 15 years under various lead roles, but chiefly serving as the team lead for the Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) and Security Test and Evaluation (ST&E) team under DIACAP and DIARMF.
