About me

Gender Male
Industry Government
Occupation Foreign Service Officer
Location Brussels, Belgium
Introduction A failure at stand-up comedy, I joined the U.S. Foreign Service in 1985 and have served in Mexico, Australia, Jamaica, Slovenia, Fiji, Austria and Belgium, as well as several tours of duty at the Department of State in Washington, D.C. When not posted to a country where they play American football, I work to update my knowledge of the game, and to share ideas with other coaches at clinics and on the Internet: http://forums.delphiforums.com/TedSeay. Divorced, overweight and childless, I enjoy reading, especially political economy and military history, as well as hiking, snorkeling, and playing cricket, albeit very badly. When asked to describe myself in three words or fewer, I usually answer “Unwilling to follow instructions.” (h/t: Righteous Raoul) Although my interview with the late Michael Manley was published in "Wisden Cricket Monthly" in April 1995, my claim to understand the LBW law is seldom heard and generally disbelieved.

If you could peer far enough into the night sky, you'd see a star in any direction you looked. When would you sleep?

If you meet the Buddha in the road, kill him.
