For the past 20 years, I have been responsible for the overall operations of an information technology training firm which services the Washington, DC Metropolitan area. I negotiate, develop, manage, and support numerous commercial and federal training contracts.  My clients include a number of government agencies, large integrators, numerous associations, and private firms. I was the Program Manager for various Title II and Title III JTPA programs in which I worked closely with DC government agencies to re-train dislocated and disadvantaged adult learners as well as assisted them to reenter the workforce.

Since 1995, I have been an adjunct professor for National Louis University.
