Biographical Information

I am currently employed by Vision Systems & Technology, Inc., a small government services company. Previously, I spent sixteen years working for the National Security Agency as a Senior Computer Scientist, then moved on to several small technology companies serving the intelligence sector. I have developed numerous applications and prototypes in the fields of geographic systems, computer graphics, information visualization, and collaborative technologies. I received BA degrees in Mathematics and Computer Science from Rice University in 1986, and an MS from Johns-Hopkins University in 1989.
