I am a 27-year member of the fire service. I have taught classes to fire departments and fire schools in Iowa, Illinois, Nebraska, and Kansas. I am a Lieutenant with the Iowa City Fire Department and a firefighter with the Solon Volunteer Fire Department. I am a Field Staff Instructor for the Iowa Fire Service Training Bureau, a member of the Iowa Fireman’s Association, the International Association of Firefighters, the International Society of Fire Service Instructors, and the Iowa Society of Fire Service Instructors.
