Goals as CIO: Keep Air Force acquisition activities focused on the warfighter's

needs, sustain the current force, introduce capabilities across all functional

areas and modernize old systems.

Most enjoyable CIO responsibilities: Tackling the challenges posed by

the rapid pace of technological advances. "We really don't have any technology

barriers. [The challenge] is really the ability to keep our processes up

with the opportunities technology is giving us."

Self-described management style: Participative, leading by example.
