I am a native Eastern Kentuckian, and have served in the military as an enlisted soldier and as an Armor/Cavalry and Military Intelligence officer. I have commanded a Combat Support Company, a Tank Company, Headquarters Detachment, and Team Bandit of the 1-16th Infantry Rangers; and was the Director of Special Plans and Operations for MCA Heilbronn Germany. During this period, I worked closely with the Bavarian Border Police (BGS) and the BND in a counter terrorist/counter espionage position. I have worked as a fireman, paramedic, mechanic, commercial diver, sales rep, giant tire specialist for Michelin, computer programmer, and now I am retired from Michelin and the Network Administration Group at the South Carolina Department of Revenue. I do contract diving and Underwater Crime Scene Investigation for thrills on the side.

Building on my military experience, I am a USCCA certified instructor as well as an NRA certified chief range safety officer, NRA Training Counselor (Instructor trainer), and firearms instructor in Pistol, Shotgun, Rifle, Metallic and Shotgun reloading, Personal Protection in the Home, Personal Protection Outside the Home, NRA Defensive Pistol, the NRA's Range Safety Officer, and Refuse to be a Victim programs.  I also have become a South Carolina State Law Enforcement Division concealable weapons instructor. I also teach Kalashnikov Rifle fighting techniques.

I am a PADI certified master SCUBA instructor certified to teach all the standard SCUBA ratings as well as 20 specialty diving courses, including Underwater Crime Scene Investigation, Black Water River Diving, and Underwater Archaeology.
