About Byron

I've worked in the federal government since the early 1990s, starting as a GS-7. I moved several times for promotions that I was competitively selected for, ending up as a GS14 in an intelligence position I've held for over 10 years now. I work closely with special agents from several agencies and know the federal law enforcement and intelligence scene pretty well. I have a BA in Political Science that I completed after a short stint in the Army (mid-80s when they had a 2-year enlistment), mostly in Germany, as a Pershing II nuclear missile crewman. I'm looking forward to fishing and restoring vintage motorcycles when I retire in ~5 years.
