I began my career working frontline patrol in District 7. I was first promoted to rank of Detective and focused on victim centred investigations. I’m passionate about mentoring and teaching investigations from a trauma informed perspective. In 2017, I decided to return to front line operations and transferred into a Sergeant position where I led a team of officers. In 2018 I was promoted to the rank of Staff Sergeant and was assigned to the Real Time Operations Centre (RTOC) as a Duty Staff which involves supporting frontline operations and investigations. My role involves being an Incident Commander, deploying and prioritizing resources in real time. I’m frequently called upon to fill the role of Duty Inspector supervising city wide resources for the RTOC. I have really enjoyed being back in uniform and working with patrol.
I have been with my wife Arlene for fourteen years who is also a CPS member working as the Sergeant of the Diversity Resource Team. Our children are all grown up, so as empty nesters we have filled the house with two loving black labs, and I fill my time outside of work volunteering with various organizations in the gender and sexually diverse community. I work hard but I also play hard. I like to spend my time off in the Kootenays mountain biking and seeking outdoor adventures with family and friends.
