As promised, a little bit about myself. My name is Stephen Phillip Monteiro. I am an independent security, law enforcement and intelligence consultant. I recently retired as a Senior Vice President of a government consulting firm and before that spent over 20 years as a Special Agent with the United States Secret Service. I retired in 2005 as the Special Agent in Charge of the Forensic Services Division and then embarked on my second career−providing consultation to the Department of Homeland Security and to the Department of Justice. Before that I was a detective with the City of Concord, NH and before all that a proud member of the United States Navy. I’ve traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and throughout the world, conducting criminal investigations and providing protection to four U.S. Presidents. I have a BS in Public Administration from Franklin Pierce University and an MSc in Management from the Johns Hopkins University. I married a wonderful woman named Carmela and have two awesome sons, Ryan and Jared. Its been a year of firsts for me. I recently welcomed by first grandchild Evie and have another on the way! I also just finished my first manuscript. A memoir entitled, The Gray Bird of Baghdad. More about that later….
