Started in 1989 as an official Army Broadcast Journalist after formal training; the last 7 years as a Pentagon spokesman which landed me a great gig as the Army's official Master of Ceremonies at the Pentagon for ceremonies and events. I do speak elementary Spanish, Korean and German with associated accents.
