After finishing High School, I immediately started a path in protective services. While enlisted part-time as a Army New York Guard Military Police Officer, My full-time job was with the City of New York Parks Department Enforcement Division (Parks Police). As the years went by, I took as much training as I could find, and excelled in the area of protective services. My last job in the private sector was with a public safety company in which I was the Captain and Operations Manager. I managed and trained over 150 Officers while supervising the ranks of two lieutenants and six sergeants. My last job in the public sector was a Correctional Officer. Since 2002 I have been actively involved with hundreds of successful Fugitive Recovery Apprehensions.
