EXPERIENCE
2/11 - Present Universal Science and Technology
Self-Employed. Worked on combined 2-project proposal for the National
Science Foundation for brain research by invitation. Developed a novel
voice cloning algorithm using FFTs in C++ and VB.net. Currently writing
an autobiography (was previously represented by a top Hollywood literary
agent.)
5/10 - 2/11

source code and documented requirement deficiencies.

4/09 5/09

Boeing Corporation, Huntsville, AL


Consultant, Border Security Project Demonstration (SBInet.) Hired
specifically to insure that the entire system worked. Knew by lunchtime
on the first day that the system was not going to work. Knew by the end
of the day that the system was intentionally designed not to work.
Offered suggestions to improve the system operation. Was let go after 30
days for incompetence. The government later called the project a
complete technical failure. Wrote a letter to Janet Napolitano, Secretary

of Homeland Security, explaining that the main problem was simply the
lack of a standard piece of software known as a Kalman filter which is
used to combine inputs from various sensors, i.e., sensor data fusion.
She never wrote back.

L-3 Com/Link Simulation, Arlington, TX


Debugged flight software (Ada, C, OpenGL) on a Linux platform for the

Arms Tactical Trainer (AVCATT) program. Responsibilities included
writing and executing test plans and maintaining software in a
Clearquest/Clearcase environment.

2007

Self employed
Submitted DoD proposals under the Small Business Innovative Research
Program (SBIR.) Submitted a Navy proposal for long-term energy
harvesting for an ocean buoy (i.e., P3 sonobuoy). Also submitted an
Army proposal for collision avoidance for small unmanned air vehicles
incorporating artificial intelligence.
Submitted an unsolicited proposal to the Pentagon (Rumsfeld) for an
electro-optical fire control system for an assault rifle that would hit an
enemy combatant just by waving the gun across the target (think of the
light saber from Star Wars.) This was accomplished by, when in auto-kill
mode, detecting the heat of a rifle barrel using infra-red video in
conjunction with motion detection software (distinguished target motion
from platform motion, an algorithm I had developed and tested on an
earlier DARPA project,) calculating the distance to the target, and
knowing the angular rate of sweep, altogether allowing the system to fire
a burst of rounds calculated to hit the target prior to coming directly under
boresight. This proposal made the list for future funding by Army
RDECOM. Unfortunately I never saw a dime.
Submitted a proposal to the Pentagon for a means of locating Osama bin
Laden and killing him, or not finding Osama bin Laden and still killing him.
This involved having a number of apparently stolen ruggedized military
laptops let loose on the black market in Pakistan and Afghanistan. The
laptops would be pre-hacked to detect OBL by facial recognition, voice
recognition, fingerprint via the mouse or fingerprint security scanner, then
reporting his location based on GPS/IMU via mil-net, RF, or infra-red.

Even the mention of his name could be detected and reported back to
U.S. intelligence. If communication was unavailable, artificial intelligence
could be used to make a positive I.D. and issue a command destruct of
the computer, or shoot him in the heart with a .22 caliber bullet. (SecDef
was Robert Gates at the time. I think Rumsfeld might have funded it.)
Called the Israeli Ministry of Defense in 2007 when Hezbollah was firing
Katyusha rockets into Israel (I was watching it on CNN) and offered to
send a design to destroy the Katyushas in flight using modified Israeli
Katyushas in conjunction with a Mast Mounted Sight from a U.S. Army
OH-58D Kiowa helicopter, a system for which I had been the lead
software engineer. They gave me the phone number, email, and fax
number of Amir Peretz, the Minister of Defense, whose office was at the
Knesset. (I had frankly expected more red tape in order to get in touch
with the Israeli Minister of Defense during a time of war.) I did inquire as
to why I couldnt send my design directly to the Ministry of Defense, since
it was a matter of military technology, and since I was already on the
phone with them. The response was, Theres nobody here theyre all
out fighting the war. Interestingly, I received a phone call a few days
later from someone claiming to be a CIA agent. I believe he was with the
CIA because he asked me 50 questions about why I had been talking with
the Israeli Ministry of Defense.
2001 - 2006

ITT Industries, Patrick AFB, FL


Software Engineer. Responsibilities included performing a complete
technical analysis of the security, vulnerabilities, and auditing capabilities
of a large scale Unix-based (AIX) system. Found a major vulnerability in
the system and put it in my report, along with the means to mitigate the
problem. Unfortunately, they didnt want to find any problems so they
buried my report and then they buried me. They put a secret termination
code into my background check that prevents me from getting hired at a
full time job in aerospace for the rest of my life. I know this for a fact
because a manager who wanted to hire me tipped me off. Amazingly, I
have no legal means of finding out what my termination code is. Even if I
could prove my termination code was preventing me from getting hired, I
cannot sue a corporation over that issue. After reading the federal labor
laws, its obvious they were written by the corporations.
Co-developed automated Fortran-to-C++ translator (F2Cpp.) This was
used to translate numerous legacy Fortran programs (generating true
object oriented C++ source code) for porting to a modern Linux server.
This action was critical as the existing system was long antiquated with
no spare parts available, and software that could not be ported to modern
hardware. Developed 60-bit classes to fully emulate CDC Cyber
hardware. Translator also generated complete code documentation in
HTML format, including class member documentation and calling trees.

Developed associated GUI in VB6 and Qt (for Unix/Linux/Windows crossplatform capability.) $6 million contract awarded by the government
based on the translator tool. Co-inventor on ITT patent, US 7,240,338
Computer language translation system and method of converting
procedural computer language software to object-oriented computer
language software.
1999 - 2001
