Professional Summary

Enterprise Architect

I was tasked with working directly with executive leadership to ensure that business process are understood and the underpinning architecture aligns with those processes. I work with the communities of practice, statewide councils and local government to communicate architectural practices as they relate to specific processes. I also communicate both internally and externally the choices made and the architectural direction of the organization.

Data Architect

I have designed and implemented data definition processes, data quality processes, master data processes and reporting processes. I have led committees and assisted in both design ad review of data specifications. I have proposed and implemented Agile Data Warehouse Design methodologies. I have been involved in and led both peer and industry reviews of data architecture methodologies.

Solutions Architect

I have performed architecture design sessions to the global 1000 in 14 countries with a high success rate resulting in architectural deployments to some of the top ISP and Telecomm leaders globally. I have the ability to see beyond the technical and couple the needs of the business drivers to provide solutions that unite business needs and technical constraints. I have designed and deployed both implementations and proof of concept environments ranging from a few thousand users to multinational enterprises with over 1 million clients.

Standards Architect

I have been involved in the development of several standards that have had impact on some of the largest software companies globally. I have spoken in front of universities, colleges, government agencies, private sector, executive councils and standards conferences ranging from intimate groups of 3 or 4 to packed auditoriums with multiple thousands of attendees. Standards I have authored or co-authored are in use by Microsoft, Adobe, Apple, Boeing, AOL, API, Vignette and many others.

I have been involved in the development business intelligence systems and data warehouses that have spanned the reporting and executive intelligence needs of large scale enterprises encompassing both predictive systems for operations and decision management for business executives..

Product Manager

I have led teams with 8 project managers and an implementation staff which exceeded 100 individuals. I have been responsible for rescuing failed over budget projects and bringing them to successful closure.


I have had oversight, mentoring and development of teams of developers, architects, sales/pre-sales, vendors and business strategy teams. I have worked as a Program Manager for Microsoft and a Technical lead at Boeing. I have led individual teams and groups of teams ranging from a few developers to 24 senior strategists.


I have been a leader in the Infrastructure Optimization, Hosted Solutions and Standards development community. I have been recognized by the industry with awards for my contribution, vision and out-of-the-box thinking.


 “It was a delight to work with Daniel on the University of Tennessee - Knoxville assignment. Daniel has a phenomenal ability to network with upper management, speak their language, and gain their support when others have failed previously. He is a gifted strategic planner and 'out of the box' thinker who is able to build synergy between competing teams. His strategic and technical skills would be an asset to any company looking to hire a senior level manager, visionary, and leader who also is a man of character and principles.”
Brent Tucker, PMP, Program Manager, IT Project & Service Management (ITSM)


“I engaged Daniel to address some time critical performance issues in a legacy system, and Daniel did an excellent job profiling and tuning the application under relatively unreasonable time and resource constraints. I've worked with him before this, on industry standards, and would be delighted to work with Daniel again in the future.
Laird Popkin, Chief Enterprise Architect at Kaplan


“Daniel is one if the greatest assets that Microsoft has encountered and is one if a kind! He is well known for his knowledge of not only SQL but programming knowledge & security skills. Daniel has been a pleasure to work with and always makes people laugh. He is the kind of person that people enjoy having around. I'm sure that Daniel's future will continue to be bright.”
Byron Engelbrecht, Systems Engineer, Microsoft


“Daniel is one of the most intelligent people I have met. Excellent out of the box thinker with architecting new solutions and extremely committed to getting the job done always.”
Tim Poole (, Senior Recruiter, CIB


“Dan & I served on the ICE-Authoring group together to define the ICE 1.0+ and 1.1 versions of the standard. Dan's knowledge of content distribution and networking systems were widely appreciated in the authoring group. Dan was a deep contributor to the development of the ICE-Standard and could always be counted on to deliver on his commitments. Dan both writes and communicates well. I found his advice and counsel always excellent and his technical contributions first rate. I would be pleased to work with him again.”
