Retired NYPD Detective, Scuba Divemaster, author of Barracuda. If you liked Jaws, you'll love Barracuda.


After retiring from the NYPD, I worked as a Private Investigator for several years. Then I was offered a chance to work in Bosnia as part of an International Police Task Force (IPTF). I was a Captian in the IPTF and worked as a liaison officer with the United Nations and the various army units assigned as part of a Mult-National Peace keeping force.
After a year of seeing man's inhumanity, and the mass graves from ethnic cleansing, I returned home to my PI work.
Several work related injuries finally took their toll, so now I am an aspiring author. Barracuda is the first of, I hope, many novels.



Birth Place: NYC, NY USA

Accomplishments: I have been decorated 30+ times with the NYPD, and received several awards from Commanding Officers and military units in Bosnia. While earning my Divemaster certification I was certified in open water diving, deep diving, ice diving, wreck diving, night diving, underwater navigation, underwater photography, search and recovery.

Additional information

Since my life revolves around murder and mayhem, I tend to read books and watch TV shows that deal with the same. I also love the exciting adventures of Clive Cussler's books. Nelson DeMille always astounds me with his police knowledge, quick wit and thrilling stories, so I really enjoy his books as well. I spend most of my time writing, riding my cruiser motorcycle, sea kayaking, scuba diving in exotic locations, and socializing with friends. I have had a great deal of fun during book signings and look forward to doing many more.
