A Buncombe County native, has always served the community as a law enforcement officer and volunteer firefighter.

I have been and will continue to be a leader. I have been a leader in the military, fire service and in law enforcement. As leader, I am able to see why there is a problem, find a way to solve that problem and motivate people to fix the problem by giving them the tools they need. I have 10 years of narcotics experience and I am the only candidate that has bought narcotics straight from drug dealers over 200 times. I carried the highest arrest rate while working break ins. I worked with many federal and local agencies understanding the importance of teamwork. I have almost 30 years’ experience, received my Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice and Advanced Law Enforcement Certificate.
