Before becoming a leading expert on cyber crime, J. Keith Mularski sold discount furniture.

Now he’s a supervisory special agent for the FBI, heading the Pittsburgh field office’s cyber squad, the Associated Press reports.

After graduating from college, Mularski spent about five years selling furniture before joining the FBI.

“I was in private industry beforehand. But I’ve kind of always liked computers,” Mularski said during a recent interview.

Mularski’s status has risen because of some recent cases, including one in which five Chinese Army intelligence officers were charged with stealing trade secrets from U.S. steel companies.

“Keith Mularski is not without technical ability, but his real talent lies in convincing experienced cybercriminals that he is one of them and not a law enforcement officer,” said Misha Glenny, a British journalist who specializes in cybercrime.
