I am a PMP certified project manager. I also have received a certification in procurement and contract management. During my career in the technical and project management fields, my positions have  included work for government, transportation, financial, medical and other industries. My primary focus now is project management and the improvement of various aspects of it. I particularly concentrate on documentation of lessons learned which I feel is the worst aspect of project management today.
