Background Information

Nicholas Eftimiades in an author and lecturer and lives in London, England. His career spans several US government agencies and hundreds of thousands of miles in Africa, Latin America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.

Mr. Eftimiades authored books and number of scholarly articles on national security, technology, and outer space issues. His latest work is a political and philosophical satire entitled "Edward of Planet Earth". It is a madcap adventure that spoofs modern life, from organized religion to the traffic control system. The story takes place 200 years in the future where Edward Temple, an ordinary person, is caught up in an zany world where self-aware super-computers are as argumentative, egotistical, demanding, and emotionally needy as the humans they serve. Everything is fair game as Edward navigates befuddled governments, psychotic software, greedy corporations, overly attentive robots, and romance. And of course jelly donuts find their way into the story.

Nick’s book "Chinese Intelligence Operations," is an examination of the structure, operations, and methodology of the intelligence services of the People's Republic of China. The book received worldwide recognition with the Chinese government declaring Eftimiades “an enemy of the people”. To date, it remains the only scholarly analysis of China’s intelligence services and operational methodology.

Nick is a frequent lecturer and public speaker on future technology and societal changes, and national security issues. He has appeared on CBS Evening News with Connie Chung, Dateline NBC, ABC's Day One, BBC America, National Public Radio, and dozens of other television and radio broadcasts. Eftimiades testified before several US Congressional and Presidential Commissions concerning National Security issues, future technology development, and the future of the US space program. He has been a consultant for several Hollywood movies.

Nick Eftimiades’ 27 year government career includes seven years at the National Security Space Office leading engineering teams designing "generation after next" national security space capabilities. He was also Senior Technical Officer in Defense Intelligence Agency, Future’s Division, and Chief of DIA’s Space Division. He served as DIA's lead for national space policy and strategy development.

In his off time Mr. Eftimiades formed and manages the Federation of Galaxy Explorers, a non-profit organization to educate and inspire children in space science and engineering. To date, Galaxy Explorers has educated and inspired over 25,000 children. He is also an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the University of North Dakota, Space Studies Department, and a passionate amateur astronomer.
