"I was born and raised in the city of Visalia and graduated from Redwood High School as well as College of Sequoias. I began my law-enforcement career in 1991 with the City of Porterville where I served for five years. I was hired by the Visalia Police Department in 1996. At the Visalia Police Department I have served at the rank of agent sergeant and lieutenant. I'm currently the night watch commander with the police department. I have also served as a detective, K9 Officer, and Bomb Squad member. Currently I am the bomb squad commander for the Tulare County consolidated bomb squad which is made up of members of the Visalia Police Department and the Tulare County Sheriff's Department."
