New Hire Spotlight: Nat Fuller, PhD.

As soon as Nat Fuller joined the Dynepic team as our Chief Architect for MOTAR, it felt as if he’d always been here. 

With a career path that has taken him across commercial, state, and federal government agencies - including working as a computer scientist and technologies for the Intelligence Community (IC), the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense (OUSD), and Chief Digital & Artificial Intelligence Office (CDAO)) on Zero Trust (ZT), Machine Learning (ML), and Artificial Intelligence (AI) research, Data Aggregation, and Cyber-related challenges - you could say Nat knows his way around. 

Equally impressive are Nat’s credentials. To date, Nat holds a Doctorate in Computer Information Systems (CIS), a Master in CIS from Nova Southeastern University (NSU), a Master in Aeronautical Science, a Bachelor of Science in Management of Technical Operations from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU), and a Bachelor of Science in CIS from Saint Leo University. He is also a Certified Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) professional, a Certified SAFe 4 Agilist, a Certified Data Management Professional (CDMP), a Certified Information Security Specialist (CISS), and a Certified Data Archive Professional (CDAP). 

When, you might ask, does he sleep?!?

“Having kids was the BEST thing for me,” he shared with a smile. “It slows you down, and you gain real perspective.”

Even so, Nat’s curiosity and passion for learning still seem to outpace most. With a current focus on XR streaming capabilities and cross-domain innovation at Dynepic, Nat hit the ground running from day one. 

“The innovative nature of Dynepic immediately drew me to the role. This company is exploring disruptive capabilities and game-changing technologies that will shape future efforts in human performance, Artificial Intelligence (AI), knowledge management, training, Virtual Reality (VR), and Extended Reality (XR),” Nat explained. “I had to get involved.” 

Nat’s passion for helping create a better future also extends to his time outside of his role at Dynepic. As an adjunct professor/researcher at Purdue University (Global), Nat works closely with students on research problems and projects related to predictive analysis and cyber security. 

His most important job of all is, of course, being a husband and dad. Married for nearly two decades, Nat and his wife have two kids whom he coaches in competitive swimming and spends every possible minute with. 

Welcome, Nat! 

Team Member Spotlight: Jeff Cunningham


Jeff Cunningham may have a PhD in predicting weather patterns, but he did not predict just how much he’d enjoy working at Dynepic.

“I thrive and enjoy solving complex interdisciplinary problems, and I get energized solving issues no one else wants to tackle!” Jeff shared.

With over twenty years in the United States Air Force and over a decade leading software, science, and data organizations in the creation of environmental intelligence, Jeff brings a wealth of knowledge to his role as Dynepic’s Director of Strategic Innovation. Holding additional certifications as a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) and Certified Cloud Security Professional (CCSP), Jeff is responsible for architecting Dynepic’s scaled platform technologies to meet design and stakeholder objectives. He is also a senior advisor to the CEO for technology strategy development, rapidly prototyping new technologies and capabilities, facilitating government interactions, and advising on cybersecurity efforts.

“At the end of the day, I just love being able to tell my kids I’m working on a platform that will help them learn new things more easily with new technologies. We’re changing the future for the better here,” he said.

The Dynepic culture has also had a positive impact on Jeff’s family - something our leadership team is committed to sustaining for every employee. No matter what ‘family’ means for you, we love making sure your job supports their needs and goals; happy family, happy employee!

After serving in the Air Force, working from home with a fully remote team has allowed Jeff to be fully present for his wife and children, and lean into family time.

“My family has made sacrifices throughout my previous USAF career, and they’ve received little accolades and fanfare along the way,” Jeff said. “Few outside of the military truly understand the types of sacrifices our families make. I am spending this time in my career/life to make sure they know they matter.”

Thank you for bringing your passion and talents to Dynepic, Jeff!

P.S. Our CEO and Jeff have something in common: they were both at the USAF Academy where they graduated from Great Eagle Eight in the best class - 2002 ;)  #nolimits

Team Member Spotlight: Kelsey Sumner

When it’s right, it’s right

Thanks to the DOD’s SkillBridge Program, Dynepic has had the opportunity to not only work with some of the most highly skilled talent but also help military veterans transition to civilian life through internships and workplace camaraderie. In the case of Kelsey Sumner, we knew it was the right fit from the very start. 

My SkillBridge internship with Dynepic was incredible!  I was given the chance to float between departments and learn more not just about the company’s vision and processes, but also how to translate my military experience/skills to a corporate setting”, Kelsey shared. “Everyone at Dynepic was so patient with my questions, took the time to share their vast expertise, and seemed genuinely passionate about their roles. When presented with the offer to stay on full-time, it was an easy decision to stay with such an amazing team!”

With a decade of service as a Logistics Readiness Officer in the United States Air Force (USAF), Kelsey honed her leadership skills working with Airmen on everything from supply chain and transportation management to vehicle and aircraft maintenance. Now a Product Manager II at Dynepic, Kelsey’s attention to detail, critical thinking, and calm stewardship skills are helping support the company in its next evolution. 

“Right now, I’m really excited about a project I’m working on that's defining requirements for the new user onboarding process,” Kelsey shared.  “It’s a giant puzzle involving quite a few teams.  I’m really enjoying the challenge of workshopping with the teams to understand their pieces of the puzzle and how they fit together, then presenting their ideas to help support decision-making.”

Kelsey’s personal interests also include puzzles (the jigsaw kind) and other challenges such as finding the best nature walk trails, restaurants, and coffee shops and experimenting with keeping succulents growing. Her favorite adventure buddies are of course her husband, Kip, and their sweet pup, Nani. 

We’re thrilled you’re part of our team, Kelsey, and look forward to your future at Dynepic!
