A veteran of multiple military operations over his career, he served in various roles including Secure Network Administrator, Information System Security Manager and as Superintendent of a Regional Operations Security Center data center. He built a reputation as a subject matter expert for successful strategies in cybersecurity, risk management and system accreditation.

AITP began as the National Machine Accountants Association back in the 1950s, and an active chapter was formed in Jackson at this time. With the advent of powerful, mainframe computers and the accompanying staffs, the name was soon changed to DPMA (Data Processing Management Association) to focus more on the processing of all types of data. However, with the proliferation of personal and mid-range computers, this name also became dated, and effective in 1997 the association members changed its name to AITP (Association of Information Technology Professionals).
