I started my career much like the rest of the nation as a volunteer fireman in a combination department. I started my paid career in a combination department on the western side of Greensboro called Colfax. I stayed there for two years and moved to the east side of Greensboro for 3 years. I worked for Guilford county EMS part time for seven years. I explored my options to several different departments in the Northeast and remained in the south. I work for I believe a very well organized and very experianced department in the south. I work for the Charlotte fire department in N.C. I am currently assigned to sta. 11 and we cover a very diverse part of the city. At our station we are part of the USAR task force for the city and the one of the state teams. I have a wife and son that I charish. I am looking at continuing my education with a four year degreein fire administration and looking at going to nursing school.
