Worked for the DoD for 9 years traveling to 40+ countries including 3 trips to Iraq & 2 to Afghanistan deploying social business and cyber security solutions that included managing a 30+ person team of remote developers.

I presented at the Pentagon quarterly between 2006-2010 briefing the joint chiefs of staff and military leaders on cyber security and social business objects.  I was the youngest person to ever hold that roll.
