My short story project called The Dark Nine which I have posted in my portfolio is a dark vigilante type story that has room to become a series.

You will see that I am extensively experienced in Management, Retail Franchises, Call Centre and Customer Service. I offer a balanced mixture of leadership, client focus, technical skills, business acumen, management expertise, achievement and drive, representation and administrative expertise, combining to give me a broad perspective and pragmatic approach to my work processes and leadership/management techniques. I was managing the business revenue of upto A$700K and team of twenty staff. In reference to the selection criteria I offer the following skills and accomplishments: Qualifications & Key Responsibilities 1. My various roles have required uncompromising standards of excellence in customer service. Consequently, I have developed outstanding interpersonal skills, listening and appropriately responding to client enquiries. I adapt my language skills to ensure that individual requirements are identified and met I consistently display commitment and leadership in achieving a level of excellence in customer service. Moreover, I adapt feedback from clients and staff to improve efficiency or enhance the level of service provided. An example of my commitment to promoting and delivering quality customer service is illustrated in my capacity as owner/manager of a retail franchise, Wendy’s Supa Sundaes (Wendy’s) where I demonstrated strong client focus, utilizing highly developed interpersonal skills to create an excellent and flexible customer service environment. In this capacity I assumed responsibility for coordinating staff and tasks as well as developing clear direction; managing workloads; allocating tasks, and leading staff to achieve goals. As owner/manager, I supervised daily operations, including all technical issues, OH&S, cash handling, banking, purchasing and marketing products. I also motivated and built confidence in staff members by mentoring them and leading by example. In leadership capacities, I adopt a transparent approach to management, empowering those within my area of authority to establish their own goals and meet overall objectives. I also involve staff in the decision-making process when the outcome will ultimately affect their positions. In my management/supervisory capacities I have demonstrated appreciation of staff as a valuable resource, welcoming participation from all team members, and benefiting from different perspectives. I have also established coaching systems for personal and professional development to improve specific skills. In all of my capacities I have demonstrated ability to build cohesive teams of employees, focussing on the best person for the job and assuming responsibility for performance appraisal. In my retail management capacity and my technical roles, I have cohesively formed and bonded teams from extremely diverse cultural, skills base, and educational backgrounds. My conflict management and resolution skills have been proven within that difficult and sensitive environment, where fairness is paramount. 2. My customer service skills in retail have proven to be of the highest standard, and I continually work to provide customers with the level of service I would expect. I believe that exceptional customer service is the key to building sound working relationships, and attracting repeat business from my client base. Similarly, in my technical capacities, I adopted an inclusive approach with internal and external stakeholders/business partners, ensuring their participation and sense of ownership in projects. I encourage feedback from clients so that we can improve our customer service. I initiated and prepared a document outlining “continuation training” for newly validated junior staff. This document was aimed at troubleshooting, initiating tasking, and providing general information on the professional development of junior and trainee personnel, as well as ensuring high quality standards are maintained after the junior member is validated into a task. This initiative improved the training and validation phase of junior personnel by ensuring their progression and continuation training was seamless and that no time was wasted in their development Throughout my employment I have demonstrated a strong commitment to client satisfaction, utilising highly developed interpersonal skills to create an excellent and flexible environment. I am consistently polite and ensure that enquiries are clearly identified and that responses provided are appropriate and easily understood. 3. In my retail customer service management role, I have established coaching systems for Personal and professional development to improve specific skills in staff. In this capacity I have demonstrated ability to build cohesive teams of employees, focussing on the best person for the job and assuming responsibility for performance appraisal. I identify organisational objectives to staff, commending them on achievements and providing constructive feedback to ensure staff is apprised of all relevant information and able to achieve optimal outcomes. I am also experienced in staff development which extends well beyond the development of programs. This requires the design and implementation of an integrated system that supports staff to grow and achieve excellence in customer service. Understanding the various ‘touch points’ between the leadership system and other managerial and cultural systems is critical and a key strength that I can offer. In my management and supervisory roles I have proven this appreciation of how various systems and behaviours integrate in the design and approach, achieving optimal client service outcomes. 4. As owner/management of Wendy’s I thoroughly investigated options to make well considered decisions whilst adhering to protocol and procedures when researching, interpreting, developing and implementing strategies. In this capacity I gained extensive and valuable experience, illustrating sound decision-making skills which have resulted in the resolution of a number of challenges. My ability to exercise sound judgement when making decisions under pressure is specifically evidenced in this role in which I was confronted by challenges on a daily basis regarding marketing, products, budgeting, pricing levels and staffing issues. I effectively interacted with representatives of the industry, constantly researching and identifying business opportunities. In my technical capacities I consulted and collaborated, as well as gaining an understanding of requirements, taking those concerns, as well as constructive insights, to my peers, senior management and stakeholders for further discussion and consideration. I have also proven my flexibility to adapt to different environments and my expertise in implementing procedures to accommodate change. I have developed a high level of adaptability, re-prioritising competing tasks and introducing change to achieve objectives. My ability to implement change is evident throughout my career and can be demonstrated in my various positions where I have successfully delivered high level advice and change strategy with positive results. For example, at Wendy’s I have developed and implemented strategic policy and procedural initiatives to facilitate various programs and ultimately improve service delivery to customers. 5. I am proficient in a range of software applications, including all of those contained in Microsoft Office suite as well as browsers, e.g. Outlook and Explorer as well as other specialised applications. I embrace the benefits technology provides in all aspects of my career. 6. During the course of my career I have demonstrated ability to effectively communicate in person and through a variety of media (phone, fax, email and correspondence) with all strata of management and staff, as well as a diverse clientele from differing socio-economic, ethno-religious and cultural backgrounds. In oral communication, I listen attentively to what is being said and adapt my language skills to suit individual requirements or prevailing circumstances. I also mentor and train staff and ensure that they understand and adhere to safety procedures. My excellent written communication skills are clear, confident, succinct and well-targeted to the reader. My expertise in this regard has been honed through a depth of education and the preparation of a range of high quality documents in my technical roles where I prepared comprehensive and accurate written reports for submission to management and stakeholders. In all correspondence I organise information in a logical sequence to ensure clarity. I have also demonstrated sound interpretative skills, accurately digesting information and translating it for different audiences. In my business capacities I have engaged in long and arduous negotiations to ensure criteria were met before projects could come to fruition. Moreover, in my technical roles I have successfully repaired and strengthened complex and sensitive relationships. 7. In addition to my retail management capacity I have demonstrated high level problem solving skills in my technical capacities. For instance, at Lucent technologies I was Team Leader (Senior Test Engineer) managing the lab and staff in research and development. Similarly, at Alcatel Australia as Technical Officer I managed all QA and audit tracks on the MAN modules and other products as ell as handling all technical enquiries about MAN and LAN equipment. In my technical roles I consulted and collaborated, as well as gaining an understanding of requirements, taking those concerns, as well as constructive insights, to my peers, senior management for stakeholders for further discussion and consideration. In my previous management/proprietorship role at Argyle Industries I effectively interacted with representatives of the industry and allied trades, negotiating sales and establishing price levels. 8. At Wendy’s I exercised diplomacy, patience and tact in all of my dealings with customers. In this capacity I established internal tools to streamline procedures. My sound judgement and ability to quickly assess the situation is evidenced in this role. When dealing with disgruntled clients, I handled customer complaints by giving them the opportunity to vent and then calmly resolving the issue to our mutual satisfaction. I also took on board feedback and subsequently implemented suggestions, where appropriate. 9. I have ensured the highest level of professionalism and integrity is upheld in all aspects of my work. Similarly, I have interacted with many culturally diverse people from differing socio-economic and ethno-religious backgrounds. In all of my capacities I have demonstrated a strong commitment to workplace diversity principles and participative work practices. In view of my own background I have also acknowledged cultural assets and different backgrounds as valuable resources, providing enrichment to our society and different perspectives in the workplace. I understand the need for the public sector workforce to reflect the diversity inherent in our society. I encourage participation by all staff. Similarly, I observe all equity principles in the workplace applying openness, honesty, accountability, objectivity and courage in all matters, doing the right thing despite the difficulty or adversity. I also apply fairness and impartiality to all issues, observing codes and obeying legislation. I keep meticulous records and give reasons for decisions, ensuring that integrity is maintained. I have also demonstrated an ability to negotiate and resolve conflicts in the workplace. I appreciate the principles of industrial democracy and Equal Employment Opportunity, understanding the implications of discrimination and appreciating the principle of involving people in the decision making process when the outcome of the decision will affect them. I appreciate the importance of adhering to confidentiality practices, management policies, teamwork guidelines, equity principles, safety policies and performance expectancy.

Summary and Objectives I have supported high visibility and ACAT DOD acquisitions such as the Safety Enhanced Re-entry Vehicle (SERV) program at Hill AFB and DOD special interest programs such as Contingency Acquisition Support Model (cASM). My experience includes all DOD milestone acquisition phases, from concept development to full rate production. I also bring a broad program perspective having supported programs as an Air Force (AF) civilian and contractor. I am interested in positions that provide opportunities for continued development of my management skills. My experience with development, systems engineering and DOD acquisitions uniquely qualify me to support DOD acquisition, development and sustainment programs. My greatest strengths are being able to bridge engineering-management communication gap and being able quickly identify and resolve emerging issues. Short Term Goals: • Continue improving my management and business development skills • Establish myself as a key contributor and team leader Long Term Goals: • Obtain my MBA • Establish myself as a expert in DOD business development and program management Personal Information Security Clearance: Secret Skills Summary • DOD Acquisition Processes • AF Engineering Processes • ICBM Engineering Processes • Systems Engineering • Configuration Management • Software Development • Test & Evaluation • Hardware Analysis • TO/TCTO Development • Root Cause Analysis • Contract Negotiation • Data Analysis • Project Management • IPT • Scheduling • Quality Control • EVMS • Professional Presentations Professional Experience TKD Technologies LLC, Syracuse, Utah Independent Consultant, November 2011 – Present I provide proposal development consulting services for DoD contractors. I recently supported BAE Systems’, Technology Solution & Services (TSS) Strategic System proposal team in developing their proposal to support a major defense weapon system. My expertise was used to establish their proposed approaches to system and sustainment engineering; test and evaluation; field support; program management and past performance. I also supported basis of estimate (BOE) development by providing manpower recommendations, including skills and experience; manning estimates; and compensation levels. I was responsible for capturing BAE Systems’ technical qualifications and provided direct writing input for over 75% of a 170 page proposal. BAE Systems management describe this proposal “as one of the best proposal efforts ever generated by our business unit”, which is over 10,000 personnel strong. Total Quality Systems, Inc., Roy Utah Sr. System Engineer and Project Manager, November 2007 – Present I have participated in proposal development teams as team lead and team member, generating nearly $10 million in revenue. My proposal responsibilities include developing man-power justifications and estimates, program schedule estimates, technical approaches, and other proposal elements. Recently I led the effort to establish a commercial test and repair capability centered on our award winning Intermittent Fault Detection and Isolation System technology (2010 DoD “Great Ideas” competition winner). Previously, I successfully led the Decision Support Tool (DST) development, with the first version being completed on time and within budget. In 2010, DST was recognized as a Hill AFB best practice and is a key tool for the Weapon System Flexible Sustainment (WSFS) program, which has already saved the AF over $274 million and is currently projected to save in excess of $710 million. As the DST Project Lead my responsibly included developing system requirements; briefing design reviews and program status; and manage the overall development effort. DST enhances Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and Configuration Management (CM) support by automating repair actions and operations analysis. This analysis tool supports weapon system reviews, sustainment engineering and reliability improvement efforts. For the cASM program I developed system requirements, test plans and implemented testing and verification. cASM was deployed as a “purple” program to support Army contingency activities in the Middle East and Afghanistan. USAF, Hill AFB, Utah System Engineer and Lead, November 2001 - November 2007 As SERV Systems Engineer, I received a letter of commendation from 526th Wing Commander, Col Robert Schofner, recognizing my technical leadership and service to the ICBM community. The SERV acquisition team was also recognized as an ICBM top performer, receiving a 2007 Scowcroft Award. I have participated extensively in SERV’s acquisition process and was a leader in the development of the SERV Performance Based Acquisition (PBA) model that saved the AF over $50 million, nearly 10% of the original projected cost. SERV was the first ICBM program to field assets that conformed to FAR/DFAR UID requirements. During SERV's development phase, I served as engineering lead for development reviews and Functional Configuration Audits (FCA) and Physical Configuration Audits (PCA) of SERV AVE flight hardware and SE. During this time I reviewed approximately 160 new and modified technical orders (TO) and time compliant technical orders (TCTO) that were published by SERV. The SERV Field Test Set (SFTS) and other test equipment were developed as a new nuclear safety certified items. I led the technical transition from development to production for the SERV Support Equipment (SE) and Airborne Vehicle Equipment (AVE) acquisitions. Our program team managed development and manufacturing contracts with Northrop Grumman (ICBM Prime) and Lockheed Martin. Because the direct contracts with Lockheed did not include the ICBM prime, our team had to manage all program elements including: contracting, logistics, engineering, program management and technical analysis. As the SE lead I reviewed all engineering changes and coordinated all type 1 changes within the ICBM community and reviewed DCMA managed type 2 changes. I supported design reviews, MDA preparation, test & assessment, and other acquisition milestone events and processes. I also prepared and presented technical briefs to AF management and review boards such as: Technical Requirements Working Group (TRWG), Technical Review Board (TRB) and System Integration and Planning (SIP), and Configuration Control Board (CCB). Previously I developed automated test equipment (ATE) software using LabView and LabWindows for testing ICBM fuze components and F-16 subsystem functionality. Testing included L-band microwave devices, analog and digital control circuitry, and system calibration. Two of my F-16 software modules were the first to complete functional acceptance testing and were successfully demonstrated for our foreign military sales customer. OnSat Network Communications, Salt Lake City, Utah Operations Manager, June 2000 - November 2001 My team of engineers, technicians and contractors supported international wireless and satellite sales efforts by developing requirements for equipment, service agreements and proposals while providing field engineering and technical support. Our service agreements included both domestic and international support contracts. Working with the Honduran government we delivered phone and data services to remote locations across the country, providing the infrastructure necessary for extension learning. My engineering duties included: C and Ku band satellite ground station designs and testing, technician training, customer and sales support, and network management. Based upon designed link requirements we would prepare a site design, support installation and conduct follow on inspections. Novena Wireless, Salt Lake City, Utah Co-Founder and COO, March 2000 - June 2000 Working with 4 other individuals we established Novena Wireless to provide broadband wireless capabilities to homes and businesses throughout the Salt Lake valley. As a founding member I was heavily involved in market research, business plan development, product marketing and technology investigation. One of our first customers was Onsat Network Communications. While still in the startup phase, Onsat approached our team with an offer for employment, ownership and investor funding. 3Com Corporation, Salt Lake City, Utah Software Engineer, October 1999 - June 2000 I developed a generic modem driver for controlling cell phones through a micro-controller embedded in the adaptor cable. I also worked on ISDN drivers for a PC Card based ISDN modem. Development was in both Assembly and C. Northrop Grumman (then TRW), Hill AFB, Utah Software Engineer, March 1999 - October 1999 I successfully led the development of software tools and models that analyzed ICBM weapon systems supportability. This project was named as a top 10 division project and had up to 8 engineers involved. This program modeled future system failure projections based upon actual and accelerated component failure rates. As the principal development engineer, my responsibilities included coordinating data development (accelerated life testing), data storage and cross referencing (Oracle databases) and software modeling efforts. The modeling and data storage efforts were based out of Hill AFB while the accelerated life testing was conducted at Warner Robins AFB. This position included working directly with government representatives and providing them briefings on project status, research proposals and supportability assessments. I also supported various technical studies including the Navy E-6B Airborne Launch Control Center weapon system link analysis study. This study reviewed air-ground communications for the ICBM weapon system to assess system functionality and reliability. Performed ground system failure analysis, including closed loop failure analyses and general electrical system trouble shooting.
