net Objective -I am looking for new opportunities to utilize the engineering management and te am leadership skills that I have developed, with an organization that is dedicat ed to quality and innovation. Technical Highlights -Currently managing a cross-cultural team of engineers in the development of Sta te-of-the-Art CDMA handsets for North America, Latin America, and China. -Led hardware engineering team in development of innovative, state-of-the-art CD MA handsets, as well as low-tier, cost-sensitive handsets, for Asia, Africa, and Australia. -Worked closely with Quality, Supply Chain, and CTO to meet strict internal requ irements for handset performance. -Spearheaded approval processes of major worldwide cellular carriers. -Co-developed Synthesizer PLL modules that combined stellar integrated phase noi se and phase lock performance to meet 2.5G telecom standards. -Designed six-sigma transmitter for industry leading GSM transceiver. -Innovated and wrote inter-active debug guide for three different products. Professional experience -January, 2007 - Present Motorola, Inc Libertyville, IL Hardware Engineering Manager Primary current responsibility is the management of hardware development te ams for cellular handsets. Development teams consists of RF, baseband, digital, and Mechanical enginee rs, located domestically and in Asia. Teams also consist of both internal suppor t engineers, as well as development engineers from multiple ODM design houses. Besides engineering, there is also a need to interact with the business and marketing teams, as well as Supply Chain, in order to plan and market the produ cts successfully. The position involves a significant amount of domestic and international tr avel, with a need to develop positive relationships across cultural boundaries. -March, 2003 - January, 2007 Motorola, Inc Libertyville, IL Lead Electrical Engineer Provide specifications, direction and leadership to the design team, while managing the testing and approval process both internally (Quality, Product Safe ty), and externally (cellular carriers). When problems surfaced, it was my responsibility to drive toward resolution s, as well as provide direction on solutions to those problems, and then provide verification of the solutions. After products were designed, and tested to internal specifications, it was then my responsibility to oversee the testing and approval process through cell ular providers, leading eventually to their commercial release. -May, 1997 - March, 2003 Motorola, Inc Arlington Heights, IL Senior RF Development Engineer

Primary responsibility was the design and development of cellular base stat ion transceivers. This responsibility included initial high-level architecture d esign, allocation and budgeting of industry specifications to transceiver subsec tions, design of lower level circuits, including research and testing of possibl e ICs to be used in the design, advance layout considerations to avoid cross-cou pling of signals or corruption of DC supplies, computer simulation of design, sc hematic entry & PCB layout. Prototype factory build support This position also required design verification and certification testing ( using Labview for automated testing); statistical analysis of data (using six si gma and five nines principals); ongoing support and debug for designs in product ion; cost reduction projects for existing products; band spins for existing prod ucts so that they can be used in markets that utilize different frequency bands; documentation and technical reports (using Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoin t); factory test design and support (using Test Stand); working with vendors for specific IC development (ASICs and modules); part qualification Education -2003 - MSEE Illinois Institute of Technology Chicago, IL -1997 - BSEE Illinois Institute of Technology Chicago, IL Certifications -Wireless Communications Certificate - Illinois Institute of Technology, 1999
