I am a professional global security advisor who continues to work in the industry with over 10 years experience. My service has included several contracts with CARE International, 7 years with World Vision International and several smaller INGO’s.
Starting in 2008 with the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs in Khartoum, Sudan to most recently with CARE International in 2017, I have traveled to over 60 different countries. I have lived in Latin America for most of this time where I became more proficient in my skill working with World Vision International.
Having become an experienced trainer in several security related themes, I have broadened my scope to assisting national staff in addition to international staff. Training has become one of my passions recently where I hope to develop further as my career progresses.
During my life in Latin America, I met my beautiful wife, Paula, who puts up with my travels and understands fully why I do what I do. Through my time in Latin America and married to Paula since 2013, I have become fluent in Spanish. I also have two wonderful sons that are at the stages in their lives where they are starting to look forward to futures of dreams and aspirations.
The most important lesson I have learned in this industry is maintaining a strong work-life balance. It has not always been easy, as you will read in the blogs, but my family, my wife, have priority, no matter where in the world I may find myself.
My travels have taken me to the following countries:
Canada, USA, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Senegal, Mali, Ivory Coast, Niger, Burkina Faso, Nigeria, Cameroon, DRC, CAR, Ethiopia, Kenya, South Sudan, Sudan, South Africa, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Turkey, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Afghanistan, Thailand, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore, Nepal, Korea, Japan, England, Scotland, Greece, The Netherlands, France, Spain, Germany, Austria, Cyprus, KRI.
