I am 44 years old and I am the father of two awesome children, Zach,17 and Avarie, 13. I am engaged to a wonderful and supportive woman, Krissy and I will soon be the step-father to an awesome 8 year-old little boy, Garrett. Can't forget about Maverick, our 16 month old St. Bernard! He's a huge part of our family.....literally!! Like many families, we get pretty busy with school activities and and summer sports, but we always try to spend quality family time together, whether that's playing a game or watching a movie.
I have been in law enforcement for nearly 18 years. I started my career as a Corrections Officer at the Muscatine County Jail, then joined the Wilton Police Department and spent 2 years there before joining the Muscatine Police Department. At MPD, I served the city of Muscatine as a patrol officer and worked my way into the Street Crimes Unit, and the Drug Task Force. In 2008, I joined the Muscatine County Sheriff's Office and have worked patrol and Detective for the Muscatine County Drug Task Force before going back to patrol, which is where I am currently. This is the best job anyone could ever imagine; no two calls are ever the same. I have also had the privilege to serve this great Country. I served 14 years in the United States Army and Reserves. I enlisted as a field artillery soldier, and then switched my job to a military policeman.
