I started my career as a researcher with the US Government Accountability Office (GAO). I served as an IT-focused auditor with both the GAO and the State Department’s Inspector General’s Office for 17 years, where I led reviews of embassy and department-wide technology programs. I became the US Department of State’s first Chief Enterprise Architect where I led a staff of 16 senior professionals. More recently, I served as the Chief Information Officer & Chief Technology Officer for the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), a United Nation’s organization located in The Hague, Netherlands. I led the largest organizational division in successful efforts to bring automation to a highly sensitive, labor intensive process that tracks the manufacture, sale, and distribution of commercial chemicals in all member nations. For the past 9 years, I have been an Enterprise Architect working primarily in the civilian Federal sector and increasingly with MITRE’s global partners in open government issues.
