I began my 27-year law enforcement career at the Richland Hills Police Department, where I served 14 years as a criminal investigator, department spokesperson, tactical sniper, honor guardsman and trainer. I left the police department to serve the Denton County District Attorney’s Office for 5 years as a child abuse investigator in the CPS/Civil Unit. I then lead the Weatherford College Law Enforcement Academy for 4 years before returning to traditional police duties for 4 more years, ultimately returning and retiring as a criminal investigator with the Richland Hills Police Department.
I have a B.A. in journalism from the University of Texas at Arlington, a M.S. in public/police administration from the University of North Texas in Denton, and Texas certifications as a master peace officer, advanced instructor, and firearms instructor (TCOLE). I currently maintain an active retired peace officer certification.
