I also served at the National Security Agency (Chief of Signals Intelligence Programs), and I teach a course on cybersecurity as an adjunct professor at Georgetown University (in the School of Foreign Service’s Science and Technology in International Affairs program). A long-time resident of Washington, DC, I am married to DC’s leading urban beekeeper. On weekends, look for me in a restored, 1970 Mini Cooper S.
