Corporate and Government Experience
CMMI Software Process Architect, United Space Alliance, Kennedy Space Center, FL, 2007- 2010. Implemented the departmental software Capability Maturity Model Integrated (CMMI) effort and Practice Implementation Indicator Description (PIID) development. This effort guided formalized process improvement for departmental Shuttle support software development.
Project Lead/Senior Software Developer, United Space Alliance, Kennedy Space Center, FL, 1996-2010. Implemented the Cartridge Automated Resource Tracking (CART) application in Oracle Forms and provided Web access to authorized users. This software manages the production, testing, and deployment of flight critical Lithium Hydroxide (LiOH) air purification cartridges for the Space Shuttle and Space Station.
Programmed the Disconnect Automated Resource Tracking (DART) program to track the refurbishment of hardware used to transfer highly toxic hypergolic propellants into the Shuttle’s Orbiter Maneuvering System (OMS) pods and Forward Reaction Control System (FRCS).
The CART and DART software efforts were both included in Spaceport Technology Center: Vision and Legacy, a compilation of the most noteworthy technical solutions created at the Kennedy Space Center during the past 25 years.
Designed and programmed the Chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) tracking program to record all CFC usage in Shuttle flow processing and to generate required OSHA reports.
Coded the Tool Control Program used to track the 150,000 tools and 800 toolboxes used in Shuttle Ground Operations, including lost tool reports, serial number generation, and management summaries.
Project Lead for the Ablative, Lap Shear, and Tape Adhesion software efforts in Oracle Forms with a C++ analog interface to a Tinius-Olsen 10,000-Pound Universal Testing Machine located in the Materials and Processing (M&P) Laboratory of the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB).

Bill Nye is a man with a mission: to foster a scientifically literate society by helping people everywhere understand and appreciate the science that makes our world work. Nye has spent the past 20 years educating students young and old about science and understands the importance of keeping minds active after the last school bell rings. “Learning can happen anywhere and at anytime – the important thing is that it should never stop,” Nye said. “We’ve put together fun, free and easy activities that will make this the summer of learning versus the summer filled with the dreaded words ‘I’m bored.’ ” AN EARLY KNACK FOR HOW THINGS WORK Making science entertaining and accessible is something Bill has done most of his life. Growing up in Washington, D.C., he spent afternoons and summers de-mystifying math for his classmates. While working for Boeing in Seattle, Bill combined his love of science with his flair for comedy. After winning a Steve Martin look-alike contest, he became an engineer by day and a stand-up comic by night. Eventually, Bill made the transition to comedy writer and performer on Seattle’s home-grown ensemble comedy show “Almost Live.” This is where “Bill Nye the Science Guy®” was born. The 18-time Emmy Award-winning show appeared before Saturday Night Live and later on Comedy Central. During this time, he also wrote five kids’ books about science, including his latest title, “Bill Nye’s Great Big Book of Tiny Germs.” BROADENING HIS MISSION Bill’s passion for math and science translated into a love of space. His role as CEO of The Planetary Society, the world’s large space interest organization, has taken him across the globe. And one thing Bill is very proud of is the MarsDials, two sundials on residing on Mars he created with Cornell scientists. America’s favorite stand-up scientist hasn’t changed much from that kid growing up in Washington, DC. He still rides his bike to work. He’ll pull out his Periodic Table of the Elements from his wallet. And his drive for helping others understand science is as strong as ever.
