Hobbies

When I am not finding bad guys, I spend my time with my wife and our three girls. If I ever find myself with spare time (what is that?) I like to spend my time outdoors and with family.

Education

I attended Western Oregon from 2008-2012 and received my degree here in Criminal Justice with a minor in Spanish. I was fortunate to get an internship with the FBI while I was still in school at WOU and that started it all!

After I graduated and worked for the FBI for a few years I was fortunate to go back to school and attended the University of Oregon and graduated with a Masters in Applied Information Management. The two-and-a-half year program was 100% online and I managed to finish the program while logging into school at night after work and on weekends.

Professional experience

Outside of teaching classes here at Western I work full time for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) here in Oregon and have been with the Bureau, or "Bu" as some like to call it, since 2011 and feel fortunate everyday to have the job that I have. I work as a Staff Operations Specialist where I focus on "tactical analysis" which is a fancy way of saying that I spend my time finding people, places, and things to progress cases. I work with Special Agents everyday and found that the more time I spent with the FBI the better I got using tools to find those people, places, and things.

Since 2015 I have been a member of the FBI Evidence Response Team (ERT) which is responsible for responding to crime scenes and collecting evidence at the highest standards. Think of those CSI shows, but with the same expensive gear but much more training!
