After completing an intensive Arabic language studies program at the Defense Language Institute (DLI), I served for several years as an adjunct language instructor for the U.S. Department of Defense. I subsequently returned to DLI to study French, and spent several years in Europe as an Arabic/French translation team coordinator in support of US AFRICOM. I concluded my career in government service with a stint as a civilian Language Program Manager for the U.S. Department of the Air Force, before deciding to settle down and launch a career as an independent contractor.
