Episode #121 - A life as a US Special Agent
Show Notes

For some of us a career in intelligence/law enforcement came about almost randomly (or completely randomly in my case!).  For others it was a chance to follow in the footsteps of someone admired.  Borealis talks to Eric Caron, a 25-year veteran US Special Agent about his career fighting bad guys.

Eric Caron is a retired U.S. Diplomat, U.S. Special Agent, HSBC Middle East Bank Executive and author of SWITCHED ON – The Heart and Mind of a Special Agent. He held senior positions within the Department of Treasury, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and INTERPOL. Throughout his career, he successfully initiated and managed covert operations that identified and disrupted international WMD proliferation networks, terrorism, terror and financing.
