2003 - 2004 Hewlett Packard
Hired to help manage and expand HP’s server and storage design team based in Houston, Texas, after the merger with Compaq. Developed the vision for a new enterprise design language, leading the full team's involvement from collaborate brainstorming and definition of tenants and attributes, through development to executive presentation and publication of an application-ready vision and principle document. Managed and mentored 2 direct reports on server and tape storage programs. After company-wide cuts shrank the team, I continued work on server programs until the opportunity with Dell came up.
