I am a retired computer security specialist with 40+ years of computer experience, of which 38 years were in the oil industry. The most recent 22 years of my career were spent as an employee of Saudi Aramco, in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, working in support of the Geoscientists and 5,000 computer users of the Exploration and Petroleum Engineering Center (EXPEC).

During the last 6 years of my employment with Saudi Aramco, I was transferred to Corporate Security, where I supervised investigations of blackmail, fraud, forgery, pornography, al-Qaida, and other violations of law and/or company policies amongst our 160,000 computer users in company cities and facilities world-wide. Ultimately, I was appointed supervisor of the Corporate Security Forensic Science Lab.

I retired and returned to the U.S. in 2003.
