Professional Experience

Comcast Corp- Philadelphia, PA— Senior Sys Eng Analyst/Project Manager, February 2012 to Present
Consultant to Comcast Corp’s Business Services division, following PLCM process for managing static IP automation project to ensure Workbench (order management tool) developed SW and IPControl (IP address database) requirements (managed in DOORS, Clarity, SharePoint Portal and Quality Center) are validated in select markets after completing SI&T and business readiness/acceptance tests. Defect identification, root cause analysis of failure logs and coordination of feature enablement with test markets, CM, Sales and Care organizations in various regions and markets to ensure national deployment readiness criteria’s are met. Also as a senior analyst working with John Jason Brzozowski, Comcast Cable IPv6 Chief Architect on IPv6 requirements, trial test plans, deployment and IPv6 migration plan (dual stack, dual stack-lite and IPv6 only) as a phased transition to an all IPv6 in the long term.

Key Achievements:
- More than 90,000 cable subscriber New/MACD orders requesting static IP processed via automated tool which is expected to result in several $100K of savings per year in reduced Sales and Customer Care staff costs
- Improved utilization and reclamation of scarce IPv4 public address for improved Billing and CPE configuration processes in a unified service delivery management system.

Wells Fargo Technology, Chandler, AZ — Sr. Network Engineer Consultant, August-December 2011
Provided network architecture performance/capacity planning consulting to Wells Fargo Technology division as part of their acquisition/merger/integration with Wachovia. Review and evaluation of strategic plan for their consolidated global enterprise network, consistent with their highly available network requirements while recommending performance and cost optimized resolution for reported trouble tickets and long term strategy consistent with their global unified infrastructure plan.
Key Achievements:
- Processed more than 50 service requests and analyzed anomalies ranging from lack of sufficient capacity,less than nominal performance and recommending mitigation including bandwidth increase, site to data center bulk transfer reconfiguration/upgrade, application execution schedule change from production to non-production hours utilizing O&M tools including InfoVista, NetQoS, HPNA, and NetScout NGenius.Consolidation resulting in BW savings, improved performance and less need for duplicate infrastructure and tools/appliances

Trucom LLC, Gilbert, AZ — Sr. Network Analyst Consultant, December 2011-January 2012
