I am a foreign affairs writer and researcher, music aficionado, and YouTube archivist in the Washington DC area. I've enjoyed a long and successful career in the USG foreign policy / national security bureaucracy where I've analyzed and written about diplomacy, politics and military affairs -- in the 1980s about the USSR, then (for nearly 27 years) about the Middle East (specifically, the Arab-Israeli conflict, political-military relations and the "peace process"). These days I work on foreign policy issues related to Africa. I've worked with the Drupal CMS for the last 12 years and am available to assist on all aspects of setup, configuration and maintenance.
