|Agency||Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office|
|Station/Area Command||Tac Unit|
|Why Law Enforcement||I had several family members that were in law enforcement as I grew up and it was always something that I was interested in pursuing as a career.|
|First Arrest||I was patrolling an area known for drug sales and use. I made contact with a girl that was acting suspicious and notice she had something sticking out from under her shirt. She was in possession of crack cocaine and different types of controlled substances.|
|Best part of the job||The Sheriff’s Office is a good size department with over 1100 employees but everyone treats each other like family and I enjoy working with everyone at the agency.|
|Hobbies||I have always been interested in music and have played the guitar for over 10 years. I enjoy working out at the gym and playing different kinds of sports. Living close to the water gives me the opportunity to go to the beach and out on the boat in my off time.|
