Abstract: Mike will be giving an overview of the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA), focusing primarily on activities in North Texas and Austin. NDIA drives strategic dialogue in national security by identifying key issues and leveraging the knowledge and experience of its military, government, industry, and academic members to address them.
NDIA, comprised of its Affiliates, Chapters, Divisions, and 1,700 corporate and 70,000 individual members, is a non-partisan, non-profit, educational association that has been designated by the IRS as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization - not a lobby firm - and was founded to educate its constituencies on all aspects of national security.

Bio: Mike is the President of the local chapter of the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) known as “NDIA Lone Star” where he has built and led a chapter of around 2000 members to accomplish major events and activities in North Texas. Under Mike, the chapter has received Model Chapter 5 years in a row and Chapter of Excellence.
In industry, Mike has over 20 years in technology and leadership in the defense industry, including Raytheon and Lockheed Martin. He’s worked on products for Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines as well as Special Operations Command. He has worked in all phases of the product lifecycle from early development through production and sustainment. He’s worked on a wide array of military subsystems, obtaining exposure to numerous technical specialties on every level of integration from the chip level all the way up to force-on-force mission modeling of systems effectiveness.
Mike is the 2010 past president of INCOSE North Texas Chapter (, where he led the team to receive the Gold Circle Award. Mike has two Masters’, one in Information Engineering and Management and the other in Systems Engineering. Both degrees are from SMU where he has also served on SMU’s System Engineering Development Team. His undergraduate degrees include a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Kentucky, and a B.S. in Math and Physics from Northern Kentucky University.
