Career Area of Interest 
I am interested in pursuing a career that bridges the national intelligence community and international security, with current risk, threat, and intelligence issues throughout private industry and/or the federal government. The six years I served in the United States Army, combined with the Master of Global Affairs' International Security Track, will allow me to capitalize on my tactical, operational, and strategic experiences, as well as my analytical and research capabilities to contribute to the success of future organizations and positions. To that end, I am particularly interested in security, intelligence, and threat consulting or analysis.
