I am a career firefighter with the Denver (CO) Fire Department. I have served in both volunteer and career departments in three states. In 2008, I graduated with a BBA in Finance and I also hold various fire service certifications, including Fire Instructor II. Previously, I served as the Training Officer for the Westfield Fire Department (Harris County, TX) and I am also a founding member of the Space City FOOLs chapter. My passion for teaching our craft has led to the authoring of The Fire Fight blog where I have published original works in both writing and training videos. My work has been published by Fire Engineering, Fire Apparatus & Emergency Equipment magazine, and Firehouse Magazine. I have been fortunate to instruct training groups and fire departments across the U.S in both lecture and hands-on formats, including fire conferences such as the Mile High Fire Conference, South Carolina State Fire School and the upcoming FDIC 2021. Further, I am honored to be an instructor with Fire by Trade, LLC, a fire training and resource company.
