Biography[edit | edit source]
Born in Birmingham, Alabama, USA. Father is a retired furniture salesman, mother is a homemaker. Two younger sisters, both still living in Birmingham. Valedictorian of his high school class, National Merit Scholar, 1982. Attended Rice University in Houston, Texas, 1983-87, graduating with a BS in Material Science and a BA in Russian Literature. Joined the American Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (BATF) in 1988 as an agent in their Explosives Division. Earned an MS in Inorganic Chemistry from the University of New Orleans during a leave of absence from BATF, 1992-1994. His thesis "Applications of Micro-stress Analysis in Accelerant Identification" is considered to be a landmark in the forensic analysis of bomb debris. Upon return to active duty in 1995 he was assigned to the BATF's International Response Team (IRT). Since 1998 he has been on extended assignment in South Korea with the Korean counter-terrorism task force, the National Police 868 Unit, training them in techniques of bomb detection, bomb disposal, and post-bombing investigation. His wife and two daughters currently live in Seoul, South Korea. Morris is a team player who likes his operations to run strictly by the book. His primary specialty is forensics, but he is also an expert at the setting and disarming of all types of explosive devices. Although he knows a fair amount about conducting counter-terrorist assaults from his years working with the 868 Unit, in hostage situations he prefers an indirect approach. Morris likes to spend his off-duty hours with his family. In his spare time he collects antique blues recordings and memorabilia.
