Having studied US Presidential foreign policy in depth at the PhD level, I am fully prepared to do analysis and provide input for the development and coordination on USG foreign assistance strategies.

Having worked with the coalition at USCENTCOM and with the nations of Pakistan, India and Singapore I am very ready to work with various bureaus, relevant embassies, the White House and USAID. I have already worked with these various agencies, to include the White House in the past.

While at CENTCOM I coordinated and attended meetings with the White House and State Department staff, including Sarah Pandith and the former Ambassador to the Islamic Conference.

Opened one Shura weekly meeting attended by Ambassador Holbrooke.

Ideally suited to advise and assist in the formulation and direction of foreign affairs or in the study and disposition of information bearing on international relations due to my doctoral research on US foreign policy administered by Truman and Eisenhower administrations.
