My law enforcement career started at the Greenville County Detention Center as a detention officer. My job duties were inmate supervision, inmate transports, and tactical team member. I worked my way up to the rank of Sergeant and started supervising officers. I worked at the detention center for 10 years and decided I wanted to be a patrol officer.

In 2007, I began working at the Furman University Police Department as a police officer and worked my way up to the rank of Sergeant. My job duties include patrolling campus, protecting life and property, court hearings, traffic enforcement, supervising officers, and just making sure that faculty, staff, students and visitors are safe. I was the courtesy officer at the Vining's Apartments for 14 years, but recently purchased a house in Taylors.

I have an Associate Degree in interdisciplinary studies from Liberty University. My wife is a special education teacher in Anderson County District 5 and I have one daughter. My favorite event on campus to attend is the Heller Valentine's Dance.
