I was born and grew up in Altoona, a small town in West Central Pennsylvania, graduating from Bishop Guilfoyle High School before joining the U.S. Army. As a Military Policeman, I worked primarily in a law enforcement capacity as a patrolman, a Desk Sergeant and Patrol Supervisor. After attending K-9 school I worked with a Police Dog for over seven years.
After obtaining a degree from the University of Maryland I attended school at Loyola Law School - Chicago. After working at two major law firms in Chicago, I started working in the securities field, investigating illegal trading activity in stocks and options.
Overall, I have over twenty-five years experience working in law enforcement and investigative duties.
I've been happily married for over twenty years to Tammy and we currently reside in Illinois.
