BA Geography 1990
Primary office:


In August 1992 I joined the Defense Mapping Agency (DMA) as a cartographer, based in Bethesda, MD. Over the past 14 years, the agency has evolved into the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) and I have evolved into a geospatial intelligence analyst. I am currently assigned to NGA's support team at the Joint Analysis Center, RAF Molesworth, UK. I live in Cambridgeshire with my wife and two children and am pursuing my Master of Science in Strategic Intelligence with the American Military university (AMU).
