Mr. Murray is a perfect candidate for your open job(s). Mr. Murray has an activeDoD TOP SECRET/SCI (Refreshed Mar 2009) and has several years experience working systemengineering processes within Special Access Programs in DoD. He has always been consideredin the top peers during his employment within DoD. He graduated in the top quarter of hisClemson University Electrical Engineering class with a 3.0 GPA within his field. He attainedover 800 on his Scholastic Aptitude Test during his junior year. He began his DoD career at a GSlevel 7 or equivalent of a Master
s degree. He was promoted by special dispensation by thegovernment during pay freezes, further indicating his top performance and excellence in his CivilService work. Later he graduated from Ga Tech with a 3.4 GPA
Master’s degree
in Informationand Computer Science. He has an excellent understanding and balance of hardware, software,interface control, documentation, integration, and test activities. Mr. Murray was hired by BoozAllen and Hamilton (BAH) consultants, also known for hiring only the nation's top scientists,engineers and business professionals. Mr. Murray has always maintained cognizance of cutting-edge and breakthrough technologies, especially nano technology, with both paid and free leadingR&D publications.Mr. Murray has demonstrated a very creative mind and has improved the way things were done inhis previous positions, increasing efficiency and quality of many products in daily work. His firstprofessional assignment was to develop a government owned first-article automated,computerized, functional test measurement and reporting system. He used object oriented design(OOD) before it was ever published by others. He had a bank of stimulus equipment, bank of measurement equipment, and a routing switch between them, all computer controlled. Hedeveloped a specialized programming control language based on conversational basic language(slow, interpretive by line) that when the program was complete without syntax/number rangeerrors, it was then compiled through FORTRAN and executed. The result was very easy testprogram development by inexperienced users, with the real-time embedded computerperformance of optimally compiled programs.Mr. Murray has always been process oriented with focus on the day-by-day activities withconcern of how can the processes be improved. Another example of his creativity effectingproductivity was his assignment to assume the project metrics reported to program managementof a large Army battle simulation program. Previous peer was using over 4 hours per week tocollect, compile, and report results monthly. Mr. Murray proposed a change to metrics processthat saved over 75% processing time; (12 man-hours per month) with equivalent detail andimproved quality. In another case he was assigned to develop metrics to report productivity andutility of an enclosed RF radar hardware-in-the-loop test range. He defined the set of performance parameters, granularity of data, frequency of collection, and reporting process thatwas adopted as the baseline standard for other test labs in the company. His results clearlyshowed where resources needed to be applied to maintain or increase throughput.Mr. Murray is a very detailed person with a gift of looking beyond the immediate decision spaceto examine the consequences of the actions at hand, evaluate alternatives and options, and foreseeroadblocks that may result by selecting certain current options. He is known to look at a situationfrom the point of view,
“What is not obvious to the casual observer?” He is
known for seeingdetails often missed by others.
Mr. Murray’s superior performance,
work ethic, and technical excellence have earned him severaloutstanding awards, including
Who’s Who in America
, plus large performance bonuses(>$10K/yr) for five consecutive years in Missile Defense Agency
. Mr. Murray’s specialt
y issolving difficult, complex, challenging problems where there is no known solution, whether it isalone, or leading a small team of subject matter experts or specialists like him. Mr. Murray is anexcellent presenter and organizer of technical conferences, symposia, and technical interchange
