Ever tried to solve a Rubik’s Cube? It’s not easy—there are so many different layers to consider as you twist and turn the puzzle.
For me, solving a Rubik’s Cube is not unlike finding solutions to the complex challenges Booz Allen’s clients face. There are technical challenges, to be sure, but organizational, leadership, and people challenges exist as well.
It’s that unique complexity that drives my work for our clients.

What advice would you give yourself as a young professional if you could go back in time? In almost any given situation, there is a difference between being right and being effective. It’s imperative to know which is more important
What’s an obsolete item that you can’t get rid of? A calculator.
What has been your biggest accomplishment to date? Raising, along with my wife of 32 years, two beautiful, intelligent, independent children into adults. I don’t know that a person could hope for much more, honestly.
Why do you have the career that you have? I’m an engineer by training with a background in telecommunications and information technology. I love the intersection between being a functional expert and being challenged to solve problems. The whole idea of working through and identifying problems and creating solutions for clients is something that has always intrigued me.
What are your three tips for managing and motivating your people? First, encourage people and set an expectation that they find a way to contribute (to the solution). Don’t be a bump on a log. Next, recognize people’s successes, but also be constructive in giving positive critical feedback. Lastly, without vision, people perish. Even though the engineer/analyst in me has sometimes struggled with the vision thing, I do recognize that people need to know where the organization is going and how they fit in.
What aspects of Booz Allen do you think are particularly helpful to civil sector clients? We fundamentally understand and have a sense of ownership for our client’s mission.
