About the Instructor

The Instructor


I have been a police officer in Washington state for over 26 years.  During that time, I have held many positions that have given me a wide array of specialized training and experience.  Training is my passion and have been teaching tactics, firearms, use of force and patrol procedures for over 20 years.

I have worked  in a high crime, violent metro environment holding various positions such as patrol, narcotics/vice detective, property crimes detective, major crimes detective, Master K9 handler, and SWAT operator on the largest SWAT team in Washington state.  

I was an assistant entry team leader, advanced sniper, and team trainer.  I have instructor disciplines in 20 law enforcement related specialties.  I have also been the lead firearms, use of force and tactics trainer for two agencies and am a certified Force Science Analyst. I am also a polygraph examiner.
