In his foreign service career, he has served in Kazakhstan, Nigeria, Washington, Croatia, Georgia, and Romania, as well as Ukraine. He is married with 3 children. He is an avid reader of any genre, but he mostly reads history and science. He loves old movies and watching sports. Atlanta has multiple professional and collegiate level sports teams that he has followed since he was a child.
