I am married and have two daughters.
I grew up in Southeast Louisiana where I got my start in the fire service. I worked for the Mandeville Fire Department (St. Tammany Parish Fire Protection District No. 4) from 1992 until April of 2000 when I was hired by the Dallas Fire Department.
I've been with the Dallas Fire Department since 2000 and currently hold the rank of Fire Lieutenant. I hold several certifications through the Texas Commission on Fire Protection as well as licensure in Texas as a Paramedic and certification as a Paramedic through the National Registry of EMTs.
I also teach part-time at Weatherford College in both the Fire Services Administration and the Fire Protection and Safety Technology degree programs.
