More About Me: My Career | My Education | My Certifications

I am an IT Professional with previous security clearance. I am currently employed by DST Systems in Kansas City, MO but recently left my position as the director of IAM  for the University of Oklahoma. I have over 17 years of experience in Information Technology, 7 of which were spent in Fortune 500 companies. I have worked in many different industries throughout my lifetime including: Aerospace/Defense, Oil & Natural Gas, Banking IT, Hospital/Healthcare IT and even IT experience with a Class II Native-American casino. My focus areas have been Wintel Server Administration, IT Security, Identity and Access Management (IAM), and IT Management. I am also an Adjunct Professor of Cybersecurity with Liberty University Online where my goal is to ‘Train Champions for Christ.”

When I am not working for my employer, I enjoy spending time with my wife of 18 years, my 5 children, and my dog. I am a published Electronic Music Artist under the name of DJ6i and you can find either of my two albums on iTunes. I also run a blog about Retro Gaming where I review titles from the Super Nintendo, Nintendo, Sega and others. I also teach English to speakers of other languages (primarily speakers of Spanish or Arabic) as a volunteer outreach for a church in OKC. I am also active in the Fine Arts Ministry at my home church where I run cameras for the pastor’s sermons and special events.
