I began my career in maritime shipping, having worked for ocean carriers and as a terminal operator. I subsequently worked for Naval Intelligence for almost ten years, with my final assignment as a task force officer with the FBI Newark Field Office. Upon leaving government service, I transitioned to Standard Chartered Bank, where I was a Senior Intelligence Officer with their Financial Crime Intelligence Unit (FCIU). My focus with the FCIU trade-based money laundering and deep-dive intelligence and transaction analysis to capture the Bank’s potential exposure to geopolitical and terrorist finance matters. I also conducted a comprehensive wildlife trafficking review to determine exposure to bad actors in the space and filed the appropriate regulatory reporting. In my current employment with MUFG Bank Ltd., I’ve performed in global roles managing Complex Investigations and, most recently, AML Trade Finance Advisory, where I effect policy via a control framework for Trade Finance products offered by the Bank. I obtained my MBA from Baruch College in 2017.
