But thanks to his tenacity and technological prowess, he’s been able to create a new role for himself at the CIA as the head of tech ops within the DPD. With his skill and encyclopedic knowledge of the CIA’s protocol and inner workings, Auggie is an indispensable asset to Arthur, Joan, and the organization.
