Quick thinking Police Officer with great instincts skilled in assessing risks and making critical decisions under extreme pressure. Trained in crisis management tactics for preserving wellbeing for all involved. Dedicated to minimizing force and maximizing positive outcomes.
As a police officer my main duties were focused on the enforcement of Tennessee criminal and traffic laws. I was qualified to carry and maintain several different weapons systems as a certified departmental armorer, provide for public safety by maintaining order and enforcing motor vehicle and criminal laws, responding to emergencies, protecting the people and property within the city of Cookeville, investigating and reporting motor vehicle crashes and promoting good community relations. While working in the field, I recorded facts to prepare reports and document incidents and activities to determine if criminal or statute violations were involved. I also rendered aid to accident victims and other persons requiring immediate first aid for physical injuries. I also testified on numerous occasions in court proceedings dealing with criminal and traffic cases. I am an FBI certified firearms instructor and frequently ran the firing range to qualify and assist other officers in qualifying with their weapons system. I am also a member of the Special Operations Group/SWAT team currently as a sniper. I have participated in dozens of of high risk search warrant executions, hostage rescue, barricaded subjects and personal protective details to include a visit from the President of the United States. I have also served as Sniper overwatch for 4 consecutive TSSAA championship games at TTU stadium as well as several other civic events with crowds exceeding 5000 people.
While working as Field Radio Operator, I was required to have knowledge and understanding of The Uniform Code of military Justice as to not be sanctioned but my main duties focused on assembling equipment to send and receive messages from allied forces. Prior to being deployed to Afghanistan in 2011, I was promoted to communications chief for 2nd Platoon, Kilo Company. I was given advance notice that 2nd platoon would not remain static and would play a major role in kinetic operations with 3rd LAR against Taliban forces in southern Helmand Province. Due to the nature of our role, I was task with selecting the best operators from the company to assist my section. I was responsible for maintaining and accounting for over $3 million in communications equipment. I was task with the set up and tuning of several different radio systems to include SINCGARS and satelite up-links as well as fielding new and untested comm equipment such as the netted iridium radio all the while maintaining constant comms with forward units who frequently used my systems to call for direct fire missions.
Working as a carpenter in a business that built prefabricated Concrete walls for any type of structure desired it was my job to build and accurately place any type of opening in the wall such as windows and doors. For every job there was a specific blue print that I had to read and discern the type, size and location of the opening to be built from stock lumber and place it accurately on the form table according to the blueprint. Measurements were precise and all aspects of the build had to be square and within an 1/16 inch in tolerance. Most structures we built required the standard aluminum 90 and 45 degree angles which I was also responsible for accurately placing on the layout table before the build crew came in and the concrete was poured. Sometimes the designer would incorporate odd angles in the build which I would have to hand build those forms out of lumber. An example of that was a round house and round church that the company donated to a community in Louisiana for the TV show Extreme Home Makeover. We had to build over 50 different angle forms from 14 degrees to 80 degrees and all in between.
As a welder at Carrier I used a MIG welder to weld mainly galvanized sheet metal to form the base structure of the industrial air handling units the company produced. As each job was different, It was my duty to read the assigned blueprint specs and assemble the proper pieces together before welding them in place. It was not unusual for me to lay/weld 300 feet of bead a day.
I am an avid long distance and hand gun shooter, taking every opportunity to get out on the range whenever I can to better myself in my job fortunately as form recreation. I also enjoy daily strenuous exercise whether it be running and/or weightlifting. I also ride my motorcycle quiet a bit as it is an excellent form of...vigilant relaxation.
