About:I grew up on my family's cattle and row crop farm, there i learned you have to be creative to build what you need out of what you have laying around, or as my dad says "re-purpose it". When i turned 18 I joined the Fire Department and worked my way to the Rank of Chief, which I still hold. Along the way that same re-purposing has built several wildfire trucks and UTV's. I got into Law Enforcement when I was 21, worked my way to Special Operations and Training, thru that I have gone many places and done many things. In 2005 I worked for FEMA in and around New Orleans during and after hurricanes Katrina and Rita, left FEMA in 2006 . Finishing up my Law Enforcement career now, looking forward to retirement.
