I am a retired FBI Special Agent with 21 years of service. I was assigned to the Washington, D.C. Field Office for my first 14 years in the Bureau and completed my career in the Pittsburgh Division. For the duration of my career, I was assigned to criminal squads tasked with investigating complex financial crimes and the illegal diversion of prescription narcotics. I retired from the FBI in 2018. Prior to my career in the FBI, I was a ground-water geologist for an EPA Superfund contractor and thereafter for private environmental consulting firms.
