I grew up in a small ranching community in southern Colorado. I then received a scholarship to run track at the university of Colorado Colorado Springs where I majored in criminal justice. Once I graduated I worked on a fire mitigation/ wild land firefighting crew for a little while. I then worked some odd jobs until I got hired on as an EMT with and ambulance company based out of centennial. I worked there for almost a year and a half before being hired on with DPD. In December I would be on with the department for 6 years. While on the department I started in District 6 before being able to be a part of a few different proactive units. For the last two years I have worked on the Denver Gang unit which is were I currently am.
