From 1998 to 2002, he served as a U.S. Army Judge  Advocate in the Republic of Korea. In 2006, he testified before the House  International Relations Committee. He was the first to identify and  publish satellite imagery of three North Korean prison camps, Camp 16  (Hwasong), Camp 25 (Chongjin), and Camp 12 (Cheongo-ri). His work has been cited in The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Reuters, The Guardian, and The Daily Telegraph, and other sources. His op-eds have been published in The New York TimesThe Washington Post, Foreign Policy, CNN International, and The Weekly Standard. A 2015 paper on sanctions against North Korea, which was published in The Fletcher Security Review, provided effective recommendations for subsequent action on this issue. Since April of 2013, he has assisted the U.S. House of Representatives, Committee on Foreign Affairs, with the drafting of the North Korea Policy and Sanctions Enforcement Act, which passed both the House and Senate and was ultimately signed into law by President Barack Obama in 2016.
