During his time at school, he was a research assistant for the Living Schoolbook focused on collaboration within the education space. Additionally, he was a seasonal employee at the MITRE Corporation working within the emerging web technologies organization.
He joined Lockheed Martin within the Transformation Program of the IS&S CIO organization in 2003. During the next few years, he led technical efforts to deliver a program management dashboard and the re-architecture of the IS&S Portal following a services model to integrate with back-office systems. In early 2005, he promoted blog and wiki technology as advantageous to business collaboration and received funding for a pilot effort branded LMExpressions. With initial interest, he helped shape a capital project providing a comprehensive strategy for delivering social software to the business with a focus on knowledge sharing across organizational boundaries. This project, Unity, became IS&GS’ effort to provide Web 2.0 in the context of mission success. He was responsible for defining the initial architecture and product strategy and was the program manager responsible for phase 2 product execution and delivery.
