As a well-rounded seasoned security solutions professional, I possess a deep knowledge across multiple security disciplines and have proven experience in working within several functional areas inside the security industry. Further, I understand that in today’s ever evolving global security threat environment, there is a need to remain relevant and readily adaptable in order to meet that challenge. Therefore, I offer a diverse set of proven skills, possessing over 20 years of demonstrated hands-on operational, managerial, security and law enforcement experience with the U.S. Army’s Military Police Corps - Retired Sergeant Major (E-9).
Throughout my career, I’ve had the unique honor and privilege of leading, training and deploying thousands of Military Police Soldiers including a 9-man Counter Terrorist Special Reaction Team (SRT) for one of the largest Military bases in the United States.
During (OIF), I managed and led a 21-man Protective Services Detail (PSD) for the Task Force Commanding General and Deputy Commander during combat operations in Mosul Iraq in 2004.
Successfully lead a 30-person Protective Services Detail (PSD) for the Senior U.S. Army Military Police Commander in Bosnia and Herzegovina during ‘Operation Joint Endeavor’ 1995; as well as augmented the Personal Security Detail (PSD) for the V Corps Commanding General while stationed in Germany.
Upon retiring as a Combat Veteran from the U.S. Army's Military Police Corps in 2006 at the senior rank of Sergeant Major (E-9), over the last 10 years, I've enjoyed an ambitious and successful career as an Executive / Personal Protection Specialist in the corporate and private sectors. I’ve provided personalized and discrete Executive Protection services and lead security direction for high net worth clients; such as CEOs, family and staff members, high profile celebrities, as well as corporate leaders, at residence, office, during travel (home and abroad) and special events.
Additionally, I’ve spearheaded all security advances and intelligence gathering activities where the client may have public exposure; performed detailed examinations of the environment, assessing risks and preparing solutions to mitigate any threatening situations.
