Who am I? I am sure we have all asked that same question. One word or one sentence cannot define exactly who we are. Over the past 40+ years I have had many roles. Find below some of my key “roles” from present to past.
- Acted in my first motion picture, the sequel to a widely popular horror movie. I also took on the role of the senior military advisor for the same movie. Currently taking acting classes, why not!
- Produced, directed, and hosted my own series of shows on The Protectors Network. I have interviewed over 150 guests from all genres; A-list actors, New York Times Best-Selling Authors, Military Heroes, Non-Profit Leaders, World-Class Athletes, and many more. My shows, The Protectors, Empowered, and PicREP, stream worldwide on Amazon Fire TV.
- Authored two books, Unwavering: A Border Agent’s Journey & Out of the Shadows, both reaching #1 in their respective categories on Amazon Best-Seller lists. Currently working on my third book on the important topic of domestic human trafficking.
- Been a guest on countless TV shows, podcasts, radio shows, and live events throughout the past few years as a subject matter expert in my fields.
- Worked over twenty years in federal law enforcement, from agent to special agent to supervisor. I have investigated everything from major narco-trafficking groups to international terrorists to international human smuggling organizations to criminal fugitives.
- Served in the U.S. Army from 1993 to 2006, from Private to Captain, from Artillery to Intelligence to Infantry, from Texas to Colorado to Kuwait to Iraq.
- Volunteered with numerous organizations helping the veteran community, including Hire Heroes USA, Veterati, OSD, and American Corporate Partners.
- Teach! One of my favorite things to do. I have taught college courses in the Homeland Security & Criminal Justice fields since 2017.
- Earned a B.S. in Law Enforcement, a Master of Forensic Science, and Doctorate in Strategic Security. Never stop learning!
