Author of The Badass Bureaucrat, an expose of government waste fraud and abuse.

Background Information




A retired civilian career public servant and Defense Department employee who rose from the depths of the Great Depression to achieve the American dream.  Born with Irish-American roots, he was from the Silent Gerneration ('30s/40's) who believed anything was possible.  After muddling aimlessly through his teens, he served in the military, put himself through college and ultimately distingquished himself as a federal financial manager.  He chose to follow the beat of his own drummer.  He was an achiever who despite the consequences, moved over and around obstacles in order to succeed.  His travels took him around the world where he lived and worked in Europe and the Far East. His encounters with others who selfishly advanced their own interests to the detriment of taxpayers, are the crux of his story.

Raised as a Catholic, his early training in Scholastic Philosophy gave him a grounding in ethical behavior that sustained him throughout his life.  His life was an odessey of adventure, conflict, luck and success.  That experience provided the basis and motivation for him to write.  Raised by his mother, he credits her for everything that mattered.

Additional Information

I began to write my book as a memoir and not an expose. The Badass Bureaucrat although it covered my entire life is probably more accurately a series of vignettes about my career interspersed with a chronological account of my life.
