"Be the change you want to see in the world." - Gandhi

Determined guy

Tenacious Professional

I approach each task with decisiveness in order to deliver quick research-based and result-oriented solutions. I am one to see a task through till the end. I will never give up or abandoned a project because it is a challenge. It is important to keep one's objective in mind and stay on target with a clear mind. I am goal oriented and pursue assignments with passion and perseverance, laser-focused until I achieve the desired outcome.

Innovative Thinker

It is important to know that I am a smart worker and innovative thinker. I utilized these characteristics to the fullest to achieve my end goal. I am a very insightful analyst and have the ability to achieve what others did not think could be done. Thinking creatively and coming up with innovative solutions are areas in which I excel. I take pride in my problem solving skills and enjoy any project that lets me utilize my imagination and come up with original ideas.

Eternally Optimistic

Having a can-do attitude is the only way I know how to be. I enjoy interacting with people and I always see the good in others and situations. I get projects done by keeping an open mind and cheerful disposition. Others respect me because I show them the respect they deserve. 

About Me

I bring an unrelenting energy to the space of safety and security. While working cases at the highest levels within the law enforcement community I am continuously building my core competencies and learning new skills. For over 16 years I have volunteered within the communities I serve by working with elementary and high schools through a professional agency and the Cook County States Attorney's Office. Experience should be coupled with a strong academic foundation and as such I have obtained a Master's Degree in my field of expertise from the University of Chicago and I am currently pursuing a Doctoral Degree in Education at DePaul University. I have been called upon to help build units three times throughout my career based on future success in creating effective team environments that have produced positive outcomes. I have trained and worked with Police Agencies while in four Countries.
