I'm a career Foreign Service Officer, currently serving as Ambassador to Gabon (accredited also to Sao Tome and Principe). From 2001 to 2004, I was the Ambassador to Guinea (where we have a large Peace Corps program). In addition to assignments at the State Department in Washington, DC, I have served in Kinshasa, Islamabad, Pretoria, Lahore and Yaounde. In 1993, I was seconded to the United Nations and served as the UN Spokesman in Mogadishu, Somalia. My wife, Annabelle, was also a Volunteer in Somalia. We have two children, a son (Jolyon) and a daughter (Brett).
