During his years as a deputy sheriff, he worked in the patrol division, school resource officer, and on the sex offender registry. He came to WFUPD in 2009 and was promoted to Detective in 2011. He has won the Community Policing and Commitment to Excellence Award twice, as well as the Best Team Player Award, Top Cop, and others.
