For the past 20 years, Chris has had a distinguished career with the United States Secret Service. He began his career at the White House working as a Uniformed Division Officer. Then spent the next 18 years as a Special Agent. He remained in Washington, DC and was assigned to the Washington Field Office, otherwise known as the Flagship office of the agency. Chris spent his days conducting complex counterfeit currency and fraud cases and protecting the President and First Family. He became a member of the Northern Virginia High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area Task Force, focusing on money laundering investigations and asset forfeiture.
The next phase of Chris’ career sent him to the Protective Intelligence and Assessment Division, where he gathered and analyzed intelligence as it concerned our protectees and the places they visit. He coordinated and supervised intelligence teams and analysts in support of all foreign and domestic travel of USSS protectees. After several years with Intelligence, Chris accepted a position at USSS Headquarters as the Program Manager for the Mobile Wireless Investigations Branch. There, he managed a nationwide program training and equipping nearly 100 agents in field offices across the country.
Chris was promoted to a supervisory position titled “Technical Staff Assistant” back at the Washington Field Office. With a cyber background and extensive training, he conducted computer forensic exams, network intrusion investigations, and analyzed critical infrastructure in relation to sites visited by our protectees. During his tenure, he planned and coordinated a complete remodel of the Washington Field Office’s computer forensics lab while maintaining an operational lab in a temporary space. A project that took nearly a year to fully implement and successfully launch and is now the example for future lab renovations.
Most recently, he joined the National Computer Forensic Institute (NCFI) based out of Hoover, AL. The NCFI is dedicated to training state and local law enforcement in the cyber arena. Remaining in DC, Chris is a liaison to the FBI’s National Communications Assistance Center (NDCAC). The NDCAC, similar to the NCFI, provides resources and training to state and local law enforcement in the communications arena.
