I was a Foreign Service officer in the Department of State for 25 years. I worked on nuclear and missile non-proliferation in various capacities for about 10 years. I helped create the Missile Technooogy Control Regime (MTCR) which still exists. I spent about another 10 years working on Brazilian affairs in vaious capacities. I was a consular officer at the American Consulate in Sao Paulo, the science officer at the American Embassy in Brasilia, and a desk officer on the Brazil desk at the State Department. While I was science officer in Brasilia, Brazil agreed to end its competition with Argentina to build a nuclear bomb. Another of my assignments was as the computer systems manager at the American Embassy in Bangkok, Thailand.
After retirement, I worked for about 10 years for the Z-Axis Corporation in Denver, where I did computer support for large courtroom trials. I used my B.A. degree in math and my J.D. in law at both the State Department and Z-Axis.
Since leaving Z-Axis, I have been freelancing on computer matters and blogging about foreign policy and political issues that interest me.
