Keeping the Faith
Instructor Bio and Resume
Passion for Passing on Principles
I was a full time firearms instructor for my agency and I was on staff at Front Sight Nevada. Although what we were teaching back then was the best we knew, 98% of what I teach now I have learned since leaving those assignments. I have trained hundreds of cops in my one day LE courses, with many officers returning multiple times. I am a Tier One Instructor for Suarez International, and present their courses in California and elsewhere. All SI courses are available to civilians as well as LE and military personnel, and represent the best curriculum and cutting edge content offered in the industry. I credit Gabe Suarez and my fellow SI instructors and students with helping to shape my fighting philosophy and training principles.
I live on 8.5 acres in rural LA County, where I have a shooting range in my front yard. I ride horses, and run in the hills around me. I enjoy learning, teaching, writing, building and creating and spending time with my wife, children and grand babies. And, as a seasoned warrior, I enjoy music and short walks on the beach. Some of the students in my courses have become good friends. I look forward to training with you.
