Professional Summary
Hard work and commitment are my touchstones.
I have served my country for nearly four decades.  Working in high-risk combat operations, full-spectrum intelligence assignments, and throughout the globe with diverse cultures and countries, I have been able to gather a host of skills to include adaptability, perseverance, and most of all a love for our great country and the American way of life.    
Now in my second career, I am looking to take the hard-earned skills of a leader, special operator, and intelligence professional in the United States Marine Corps and become part of an organization that wants to succeed, make the world a better place, and cares about its people and their respective futures. 
I have extensive experience overseas, to include the Balkans, Middle East, Far East, and most recently in Africa.  That "on the ground" experience gives me insight and value-added perspective with regard to the many complex problems and issues that exist in the dynamic world we live in world today.  Additionally, that experience gives me the foresight to know that learning is a lifelong endeavor and that working with other professionals in a synergistic fashion brings about spectacular results. 
I will always give 150% to any organization and its goals, people, and missions.
