He has also served as a military advisor to the United Nations.

As President and CEO of a publicly traded software company that specialized in fraud prevention and law enforcement information technology, Dr. Roof successfully led his company through the processes to become a member of the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) and the National Law Enforcement Telecommunication System (NLETS).  The identification authentication software developed by Dr. Roof’s company is in use by law enforcement and financial institutions nationwide.

Dr. Roof’s career includes considerable training experience.  He was selected and served as Commanding Officer, Fleet Intelligence Training Center, Pacific and Joint Intelligence Training Activity, Pacific. In this capacity, he “trained the trainers,” managed the preparation of course materials, and led mobile training teams to locations around the world, including South Korea.

Most recently, substituting for a professor who was unavailable due to illness, Dr. Roof prepared weekly lessons and taught Software Engineering to graduate students at the US Naval Postgraduate School.
