I was born in Missoula MT and grew up enjoying marksmanship, hunting and all outdoor activities. I joined the Marine Corps after high school and after my first combat deployment (Operation Desert Shield/Storm) and 8 total years in the Corps, I returned to Missoula to complete College.
I joined the Montana National Guard and deployed 2 more times to Iraq (Operation Iraqi Freedom) before retiring as an Infantry Captain. I joined the Missoula Police Department in 2000 and have enjoyed a fulfilling career in law enforcement.
With more than 20 years in the military and over 15 years in law enforcement, I have a wide range of experience with most hand held and shoulder fired firearms and weapon systems, to include instruction on many of them. I enjoy teaching others and passing on the knowledge that a lifetime of experience has given me.
