A member of the fire service since 1992, I am an active member of a volunteer department as well as employed by Durham Fire Department where I serve as a Captain and an Adjunct Instructor for the Training Division. I have achieved a variety of certificates, training, and have several professional qualifications. As a member of two types of departments, I have been allowed to experience many different scenarios and situations that have broadened my vision in firefighting.
