For the last 12 years I have worked to Counter Threat Finance (CTF) entities that have ties to Terrorism and Trans-national Organized Crime. Recently, took over as the Sr. CTF Analyst for U.S. Special Operations Command Europe. Previously, held the same position for four years at U.S. Special Operations Command South. This role has allowed me to build positive relationships with the U.S. Interagency and Partner Nations to collaborate on financial investigations that support Judicial end states that are of mutual benefit to U.S. and Partner Nation Law Enforcement efforts. Also, I provide CTF training to US military units to build a better understanding on methods and opportunities to deny and/or degrade the access to financial assets of Terrorist and Trans-national Organized Crime groups. Key to all of these CTF efforts is understanding the financial industries challenges and successes in tackling money laundering and terrorist finance.
