Military and Police Advisory Group’s Chief Instructor has over 30 years of experience in firearms and leadership training. He has literally trained thousands of professionals and civilians alike.

He served in the United States Army Infantry from 1976 to 1989 and was honorably discharged as a Sergeant First Class (E-7). He is proud to be associated with the term "grunt" and has served in a variety of leadership positions ranging from Squad Leader to Platoon Sergeant in Light Infantry units. During his enlistment he served as an instructor in numerous subjects including, but not limited to; Survival Escape Evasion Resistance training, effective communications, leadership styles, problem solving and decision making, land navigation, small unit tactics and has instructed soldiers in the use of all firearms employed by an infantry unit including demolitions.

While assigned to the Third Corps Noncommissioned Officers Academy, in Fort Hood Texas, he was instrumental in developing a program of instruction known as the Senior Leadership Academy, which instructed law enforcement agencies throughout the state of Texas in the fundamentals of leadership and effective communications.

He retired in May 2015 after serving honorably as law enforcement professional in the State of California since 1989. His assignments have included Chief of Police, Commander of Police Services, Patrol Sergeant, field training officer, undercover narcotics, high-risk entry team member, police sniper, gang detail and special problems unit member. He ultimately retired as the Chief of Police for the City of Port Hueneme in Ventura County.

He continues to participate in sniper/tactical rifle competitions each year including Snipercraft’s, Sniper Week in San Diego, Phoenix Tactical Precision Rifle Competition and the CMP Western Games Vintage Sniper Match.
