I am a devoted husband, a proud father of two boys, a caring son to a single mother, and a multi-talented professional with diverse skills. With over 26 years of experience in the security industry, I have led teams for some of the world's largest corporations, including Walt Disney World, Amazon, and Meta (Facebook).
As a former Deputy Sheriff, I hold a bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice with a Security Leadership certificate from the University of Central Florida and a Master's in Disaster and Emergency Management from American Military University. I have also led security teams during major international events such as Super Bowl 50, Major League Baseball, National Basketball Association, and World-Class Marathons, among many others.
As a speaker, author, educator, and podcaster, I have shared my security knowledge with audiences worldwide. I am the author of the Amazon #1 Release, "So, You Want to Get into Corporate Security?" and have earned the moniker "The Corporate Security Translator," for my ability to communicate complex security concepts to a wide range of audiences.
Above all, I am dedicated to building world-class customer-centric security experiences that create memorable outcomes. As a leader in the security industry, I have a record of success in providing the strategic direction necessary to delight millions of guests and employees worldwide.
I am fortunate to be surrounded by exceptional individuals who are leading the way in the security industry. They are not just my confidants, but also my thought partners, influential circle, mentors, and most importantly, my dear friends.
I recount my experiences in the security industry and life through podcasts, interviews, presentations, blogs, books, storytelling, and engaging conversations. With great passion, I impart the knowledge and leadership principles that I have garnered during my years in the industry, being mentored by some of the world's finest leaders.
