 I began my fire service career in 1994 as a Paid On Call Firefighter at Albertville Fire Department. In 1998 the city discontinued the P.O.C. positions. From 1999 till 2002 I worked at Oneonta Fire Department as a part time firefighter. In 2002 I was hired as a full time firefighter at Albertville Fire Department. I received my Paramedic License in 2004. I was promoted to Lieutenant in 2010. I also have worked at Marshall Medical Centers Ambulance Service since 2002.  I am blessed and thankful to have a job I love.

I married my wife Kim in 1995. We have two children Katelyn and Allison.
