|Station/Area Command||East Precinct|
|Why Law Enforcement||Stumbled into it. I wanted a job where I could actually impact the people around me and at the end of a hard work day I could look myself in the mirror and feel good about the man looking back at me. Of course, like anyone not involved in law enforcement I had no idea what I was truly getting into.|
|First Arrest||It was odd. I arrested a man on a shoplift. I was riddled with compassion and it was the first of many events leading me to my views on economic inequality.|
|Best part of the job||I really love to connect with individuals. There is so little we can affect on society as a whole, working as an extension of government. However, when you are one on one with someone who is at such a low point that police are involved…opportunity sometimes presents itself. Every once in a while someone hears the words they need to make it through a moment…and every once in a while I am privileged enough to be that person who says those words.|
|Hobbies||I love getting out…and running and playing sports…but I also have a great passion for food and travel. I really love life as a whole. I think the better question is what I don’t like to do..(.I don’t like okra).|

The suspect led my training officer and myself into a parking lot where he was taken into custody. While in custody he spit on my training officer and continued to become irate. I was later told by officers that the individual we were dealing with is know for fighting and spitting. I learned my lessons the first time.|
