After graduation I joined the Peace Corps where I found myself teaching English in Uzbekistan for three years. I met my wife there, we returned state-side and started a family. We have two wonderful and energetic boys, Kamran and Alan. I quickly realized that knowing foreign languages only was not quite enough to get a job that supported a family in the US. So, I went to school, and got my Masters in IT. I currently work at the Census Bureau as a computer programmer.
