Teacher: I taught mathematics at The University of Texas at Austin and Vanderbilt University. I also taught statistics at the UT Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences.

Statistician: I've published papers that have come out of solving problems in the design and conduct of clinical trials, and I've developed software to make innovative statistical methodologies practical.

Software developer: I have developed software for mobile devices, desktops, and web servers. I've developed business applications and scientific applications. I've worked on projects ranging from Windows interfaces down to microcode.

Manager: I managed software development for the Department of Biostatistics at M. D. Anderson Cancer Center for several years, growing the development team from 3 to around 20 developers. I also served on the board of trustees of a private school for several years.
