I had a corporate career, then joined the FBI, quite frankly found that it was not my cup of tea, and now I do strategic technology planning for a large government organization.  I have a million hobbies ranging from pinball to pugs (VERY competitive on the pug Halloween costume competition circuit), and one of my passions is helping others.  Since I know what life is like in the FBI, I have dedicated time to informing others more about the process plus the pros AND cons of the career.  While I left the FBI and am thrilled to be a normal citizen that no longer has to do that very tough job, I am forever grateful to all of my former fellow agents, law enforcement officers, and everyone else who serves the United States.  Many have given the ultimate sacrifice for you and me, and that is an important lesson that I appreciate every single day.
