About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Diplomat
Location Springfield, VA
Introduction Now mostly retired, I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Kenya, then served for thirty-five years in the U.S. Foreign Service, including postings in fifteen African countries and on delegations to the UN general Assembly and UN Human Rights Commission. I wrote a book - In the Aftermath of Genocide: the U.S. Role in Rwanda - about my experiences as U.S. Ambassador in Rwanda (1996-99) and an earlier novel - State of Decay - set in the Central African Republic, where I was also ambassador. I also wrote Murder in Mombasa, a mystery set in Kenya. These days I write and teach and occasionally take on short term assignments for the Department of State.
