What were you doing on 9/11? (Or, What was your interviewee doing on 9/11?)

I was assigned as a Special Agent with the FAA Civil Aviation Security Office (CASFO), JFK International Airport, NY. And although I was worked the 4-12 shift, I was called up and directed to o go to ISP Airport on Long Island, meet airline management and shut the airport down.

How did 9/11 affect you personally and or professionally?

Homeland Security and TSA was established and a lot of opportunity in the field of AVSEC was created. I have been a member of TSA Office of Global Strategies conducting Airport Security surveys around the world. You cant do AVSEC without thinking to 9/11 and the profound impact it left on the world.

On 9/11, what sector were you (OR your interviewee) in?

Government – Aviation-related
