I've been a podcast listener for quite a while, more than 18 months, but I've only recently started exploring the forums.
I currently manage the Systems Engineering Branch for the Space Telescope Science Institute, the home of the Hubble Space Telescope and future home of the James Webb Space Telescope. I have 12 direct reports, most of them maxtrixed to one or two system engineering teams. I also have two software engineers matrixed to me (part time) from other branches.
This is the third branch I've managed in the last four years as we've gone through some organizational changes. I was a team lead for two years before that, so I've been managing for six years. It's still a learning experience.
I live in suburban Maryland (Ellicott City) and work on the Johns Hopkins Homewood campus in Baltimore.
I'm not fully-MT-compliant, but I've found the podcasts incredibly helpful, and I look for opportunities to apply them. I really appreciate the work that goes into them!
