United States Coast Guard veteran with a total of 7 years of service. During my time in the military, I served as a Boatswain’s mate where I specialized in Maritime law enforcement, recreational boating safety, drug and migrant interdiction. I was a certified small boat operator, and I was responsible for the safe operation and navigation of the boats, and the safety and conduct of all passengers and crew onboard. Furthermore, I have worked with federal, state, and local agencies and with foreign navies for the prevention, detection, and suppression of violations of laws of the United States.

I am a devoted officer with the proven ability to be able to remain calm in high stress situations while still being able to focus and complete the necessary task. I also take pride in my ability to be able to deal with citizens of diverse social and economic backgrounds.
