Professional Experience

Dallas Semiconductor/Maxim Integrated Products
Dallas, Texas
August 2001 - present
Title: Design Engineer

Working with Dallas Semiconductor/Maxim's mixed signal design group, using the in-house CMOS process. Focusing on TCXO design, real-time clocks (RTCs), and SCSI terminators. Primary designer of the DS3231 (including DS3232/DS3234/DS32x35) product line, a range of 32kHz TCXOs with real time clock and integrated crystal.

Dispersion Design
February 1996 - present

Self employed, providing a variety of design, publishing and photographic services through both Internet and traditional mediums, including music notation layout and publishing. Use Adobe software packages and Passport Encore, as well as being fluent in HTML and JavaScript. Incorporate knowledge of Perl and C++ to write CGI programs. Some past projects include web site planning, design and coding, and publishing two music books: 'Top Shelf Recorder' and 'His Reign Shall Never End.'

Sound, Production and Lighting (formerly SUB Systems)
University of Idaho, Moscow, Idaho
January 1998 - May 2001
Title: Sound Technician

Provided sound reinforcement for concerts, lectures and conferences in the North-West US. Trained on a variety of sound, lighting, video and 35mm projector systems. Trained new employees on 35mm projector system and large format front of house and monitor sound consoles.

Knight Piesold
Denver, Colorado
May 1998 - August 1998
Title: Systems Administrator

Worked on a team of three systems administrators, providing computer support for a team of about one hundred engineers. This involved both hardware and software installation and upgrading on a variety of Intel based machines. Maintained Windows 3.11, Windows 95, and Windows NT clients running on both a Novell 4.11 and NT networking system. Performed upgrade and maintenance operations on the TP (twisted pair) and Coax (BNC) dual speed switched ethernet network. Personally organized the porting of mail systems from UNIX to LINUX.

Computer Skills

Academic Projects

High Speed Linear Interpolator - Designed, simulated and generated layout for a high speed linear interpolator using a 130 nm CMOS process. (VLSI, Spring 2008)

VHDL Control Unit Design - Designed a respiratory flow meter and implemented using FPGAs coded with VHDL. Worked with a group to set specifications and delegate work. (Digital Systems Engineering, Spring 2000)

Computer Architecture CPU Design - Designed and built a multi-cycle integer CPU in hardware description language (HDL). Simulated each design stage using VERILOG. (Computer Architecture, Fall 1999)

Software Engineering Methodology - Implemented a simple programming task in a group setting using correct software engineering process. Created specifications and design documents. Coded the design. Fully tested the code, both statically and dynamically and then performed maintenance operations on the design. (Software Engineering, Fall 1999)
