. . .
After graduating O'Connell in 1964, I attended Philadelphia University, earned my B.S. in 1968, entered the Army for two years, and served in Vietnam. After my military discharge, I returned to Vietnam, worked there as a civilian contractor for Ford Aerospace for several years, and finally returned to the states, where I was employed as a cost analyst, industrial analyst and Budget Director for a major company. I married the former Nguyen Thi My Dzung of Saigon.I subsequently earned an MBA and completed all the course work for a Doctoral degree in Economics and Finance (Pace University, New York). I've taught courses in Finance and Quantitative Methods as an adjunct professor at several different college and universities.
I joined the Department of Defense as a Contract Specialist at the Defense Logistics Agency office in Manhattan. I later transferred to the Atlanta Georgia area and was a contract division chief and multi-disciplinary team leader at the DCMA Lockheed, Marietta, plant office, where I worked with major systems, the F-22, C-130J and C-5. In 2002, I was hired by the US Centers for Disease Control as a Contracts and Grants Manager and later served as the Director, Policy, Oversight and Evaluation for the CDC's Procurement and Grants Office. I retired in 2013 with 35 years of Government Service.
Since retirement I've written three books, all available on Amazon.com: "Appropriations Law for Contracts and Grants," "Distance" (a novel), and "PA '69" (a novel). I'm completing a third novel, "All the Tea in China," which should be available by mid-January, 2014.
My wife of forty years and I raised six children and have three grandchildren. Most of us reside in Duluth, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta, or very near by.
