In October 2010 I joined the U.S. intelligence community as a public affairs officer with the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, where I now serve as chief of news and information services, with responsibility for media relations, workforce communications, public and intranet websites, social media and more. Also at NGA I was media relations team lead, chief of internal communications, chief of communications plans and operations, and deputy chief of the communications group.Earlier I was in the corporate world, notably as director of communications, marketing and public relations at a business unit of General Dynamics. Before that I was a public affairs officer for the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Department of Defense, where my final assignment was to lead the department's press operations in the Pentagon.
Outside of work I like to listen to audiobooks, mostly classic fiction, while commuting, and I like to go on bike rides with my wife, mostly along old towpaths and railways in DC, northern Virginia and Maryland. I'm interested in journalism and the future of the news, and I'm interested in books and the future of libraries.
