I have been employed by the Federal government for over 30 years and I am still as committed and passionate about directing complex transnational investigations while protecting America's borders, national security, and public safety from threats both at home and abroad, as the very first day I started my career. For the past seven years I have been able to take all of my vast work experiences learned from previous supervisors and colleagues and successfully incorporate them into all of my supervisory positions. My willingness to improve as a person and as a criminal investigator ultimately enabled me to become a well-respected, well-rounded, proven leader, and manager with a keen sense of identifying deficiencies and improving every group I have supervised throughout my career.

This CUC Group was established in 1989, when I began to supervise the CUC Group had a completely tarnished reputation among the rank-and-file in the office.
I challenged my group to commit to a team-concept and develop cooperative working relationships with the agents which would create a more positive working environment for everyone.
I personally met with each Group Supervisor in the office and demonstrated ways our CUC Group could assist their agents by providing undercover operations expertise and guidance while utilizing our funds, equipment, bank accounts, and real property in support of their investigations.
The CUC Group presently has six certified programmatic areas: Commercial Fraud, Counter-Proliferation, Cyber-Crimes, Financial, Narcotics Smuggling, and Human Smuggling.
We presently have 65 open investigations in all six programmatic areas.
I ensure that all of the information compiled between the case agents, managers, US Attorney's, the Undercover Operation Unit (UOU) in Headquarters, and other entities is completely accurate so that our CUC Group presents a quality end product.
During my supervision, the CUC Group has executed 264 Criminal Arrests, 147 Indictments, 182 Convictions, and 118 Seizures valued over $25,795.00.

Senior Intelligence Research Specialist, and one (1) Investigative Assistant Deputy Assistant Directors, Executive Assistant Director03/2010 to 06/2013Company NameCity, State
I was recruited by the Special Agent in Charge (SAC) Tampa to be the Group Supervisor over the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Strike Force due to my exemplary supervision of the Certified Undercover (CUC) Group in Key West, Florida.
At this Strike Force, I supervised eight (8) Criminal Investigators, one (1 I also assisted with the supervision of the rest of the Strike Force which was comprised of over 50 Criminal Investigators and Intelligence Research Analysts from the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the US Coast Guard (USCG), the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS), and the Joint Inter Agency Task Force South (JIATFS) from Key West, Florida.
As soon as I arrived at the Strike Force, I quickly identified a major problem being that the FBI controlled all of the Confidential Informants (CI) and Sources of Information (SOI) and my agents were only allowed to document a CI for payment purposes but could not speak to or direct the CI without FBI permission.
I analyzed these procedural problems and diplomatically addressed each and every issue with all of the Strike Force management and was eventually able to provide solutions to these organizational problems and create a better work environment for everyone.
During my supervision, my agents were able to document and control over ten CIs and numerous SOIs and conduct numerous proactive transnational undercover maritime smuggling operations.
My agents coordinated these complex investigations with our Attaché offices while conducting their criminal investigations concerning major leaders of drug cartels operating in the Eastern Pacific Ocean.
During my supervision at the Strike Force, we executed 290 Criminal Arrests, 155 Indictments, 155 Convictions, and 26 Seizures of $127,000.00 in property and 11,174 Kilograms of Cocaine from Transnational Drug Trafficking Organizations operating in the Eastern Pacific.
I also created an Immigration Working Group that addressed a major problem with over 400 individuals and their dependents who were paroled intothe US as a result of their cooperation with the Strike Force since January 2000.
Prior to my supervision, the Strike Force previously placed these individuals into an immigration status that did not provide permanent solutions toward obtaining legal permanent residence or status for these individuals.
I organized meetings with representatives from the Homeland Security Investigations Witness Security and Immigration Benefits Units, Office of the Principal Legal Advisor (OPLA), US Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS) Asylum Division, and the US Marshal's Witness Protection program in an effort to address these issues.
We systematically worked on the status of each individual and were able to classify them as being eligible for immigration benefits.
Based on my findings, I presented a test case for two asylum applications which were reviewed and accepted by US CIS Asylum in Washington, D.C., and these two individuals were able obtain permanent status.
Our Immigration Working Group permanently changed HSI policy concerning immigration benefits for a particular immigrant group.
I also prepared and presented numerous Strike Force briefings to USCG Boarding and Law Enforcement Detachment Teams, Admirals, Generals, Congressional Representatives, HSI agents (EAD) all the way up to the Director of ICE.
I prepared the annual $150,000.00 budget, Executive Case Summaries, and Funding Requests.
Resident Agent in Charge10/2008 to 03/2010Company NameCity, State
I was the Group Supervisor for CUC Group as well as the Program Manager for the operation which was comprised of nine (9) Special Agents and one (1) Investigative Assistant.
This group was responsible for Narcotics and Contraband Smuggling investigations which primarily focused on maritime and air transportation operations in the Caribbean Sea.
This CUC group was established in June 1992 and I learned quickly that our small group could not achieve its maximum potential with our limited resources so I immediately developed relationships with the JIATFS, DEA, FBI and State and local law enforcement agencies.
This decision exponentially increased our manpower and resources and greatly enhanced our efforts to perform multinational maritime narcotics smuggling operations and investigations.
I was able to liaison with JIATFS management and convince them that their investment in our operation would be mutually beneficial to both of us - the CUC Group provided JIATFS with actionable intelligence to interdict vessels laden with contraband and JIATFS provided the assets to execute the end game.
I coordinated directly with JIATFS management to provide round-the-clock logistical support with maritime and air assets, tracking devices, aerial and sub-surface surveillance, and intelligence analysis.
As supervisor of this CUC Group, I traveled to Washington, D.C., in August 2010 to brief Main Justice and Department of State concerning a $2 million Reward due to a confidential informant (CI) who played an integral role in the arrest, indictment and conviction of a drug cartel leader who was designated a Consolidated Priority Organizational Target (CPOT).
During my supervision of this group, we executed 93 Arrests, two (2) Indictments, nine (9) Convictions, and 32 Seizures including 297 kilograms of Cocaine, 2,095 Pounds of Marijuana and one (1) Aircraft.
