Mark Perry from the U.S. State Department will present “Living the Dream: One Man’s Journey from BYU Grad to Diplomat” at a Brigham Young University Global Awareness Lecture at noon on Wednesday, July 23, in 238 Herald R. Clark Building.

Perry recently completed his first tour with the U.S. Consulate General in Monterrey, Mexico, where he worked as a vice consul overseeing the guest worker visa program and working in the American citizen services section.

He is on his way to Washington, D.C., for language and area studies training in preparation for his next assignment in Cairo, Egypt.

Before joining the U.S. State Department in 2005, he worked in compensation and benefits for the Engineered Products and Services division of Tyco International and as an engineering technician for the flight simulation software group at Rockwell Collins.

Perry received a bachelor’s degree in international relations from the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies and a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Iowa.
