I’m a student of the human experience, a police lieutenant, a military reserve officer, an adjunct faculty member at a local community college, a husband and a father. I’ve worked in public safety for two decades and have been a member of the U.S. Coast Guard, active and reserve, for twenty-seven years.

I drive an old Volvo, because its cool and it confounds the cultural conventions of my profession. I strive to be the contrarian to conventional wisdom in public safety all the while supporting the men and women who bravely stand the watch, always prepared to run to the heart of the crisis to help others.

As a lifelong learner, I study resiliency, wellness, social psychology, positive psychology, other disciplines, constantly striving for actionable ideas that can influence positive cultural growth in public safety. Mindfulness is chief among the evidence-based tools that I study, practice and advocate for responder resilience.
