Steve Psarakis founded Dorrean on April Fool’s day in 2008 during a down economy. Being an optimist, he saw there was a lot of upside potential. His business plan was to take on the hard problems and to utilize new collaboration technologies to help customers transform their organizations.
Over his career, Steve has worked with very talented people on a wide-range of programs and projects for the Department of Justice, Department of Defense (DoD), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and the Department of Agriculture (USDA).
Steve started his career in 1987 providing services to the Defense Health Services System (DHSS). He developed the first enterprise architecture for the military health system, supported the redesign of mental health services in the national capital area, and led the development of the military’s first real-time healthcare analysis system and data warehouse. Steve was recognized by the HHS Secretary for his work on implementing a command and control center for the Director of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
Since 2005, Steve has led multiple projects for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Executive Office for United States Attorneys (EOUSA), the U.S. Marshals Services (USMS), and the office of the DOJ Chief Information Officer. Steve architected a service-oriented approach to multi-modal biometric fusion for the FBI’s Next Generation Identification (NGI) System. He also led the design of the FBI’s new Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) System. His project teams have worked with over 200 federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies nationwide.
