I started my leadership journey working in the metro-Atlanta area as a police officer and SWAT Operator and after 7 years transitioned to the role of Infantry Leader in Afghanistan where my true test of crime and risk mitigation began.

I built that experience into Knight Protection Services, where I am able to provide the leadership techniques I learned to a wide array of businesses.

I started Be a Tactical Leader in an effort to share the lessons that business leaders, as well as my own lessons in business, have learned after years of experience. My goal in the next year is to publish a book detailing these experiences titled “The Legacy of Leadership”.

I am also giving back by volunteering on the board of Vetlanta, the physical security council for ASIS, and as co-chair of Surviving To Thriving.
