Special Weapons and Tactics


I have a multifaceted background, including experience in emergency medical services, law enforcement, and the military. I began my career in the United States Marine Corps from 1988 – 1994 including deployments in support of Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm and Operation Restore Hope. I served as a Medical Specialist in the United States Army Reserves from 1996 to 1999 and has been a Paramedic since January 1999. I have worked as a single role Paramedic, Firefighter/Paramedic, HazMat Technician, Arson Investigator, and Lieutenant with several municipal fire departments, including the Stone Park Fire Department. I served for a year as a single-role paramedic with the Chicago Fire Department. In 2006-2007, I completed a year tour in Iraq with the Illinois Army National Guard where I served as a medic with a rifle company in Baghdad and was awarded a Bronze Star Medal and Combat Medical Badge. I have been with the Chicago Police Department since September 2004. I started as a patrolman in District 015, and upon my return from Iraq was moved to the Education and Training Division, where I worked as an Anti-Terrorism instructor as well as a marksmanship and tactics instructor. I am currently attached to the SWAT Team as the Team Leader of both the Medical Team and Weapons of Mass Destruction Team. I am an experienced instructor. In addition to my experience with the Chicago Police Department, and was affiliate faculty at the Loyola University Medical Center Program for Prehospital Medicine, where I taught in the classroom and served as a Field Internship Preceptor. I have given numerous invited presentations on Tactical Medicine, Emergency Medical Services, Hazardous Materials, Tactical HazMat, and disaster preparedness.
