Joined the worlds greatest profession in 1995 after participating in a swift water rescue on the Arkasas River in Colorado's Gorge Canyon. What an exiting thing to be a part of, I was hooked. After joining, I found this group of individuals who would risk their lives for people they did not know. This may sound corney but it renewed my faith in humanity. I have since found a brotherhood that I am very proud and honored to be a part of. I began teaching recruits in our fire accademy in 1998 and will continue to do so as long as they need me. I joined the officer ranks in 2003 as a Lieutenant and today hold the position of Chief.
