I was born in Gallup, NM. My career has been mix of public and private sector; I worked with the Indian Health Service, was a member of a large democratic group, and had individual contracts in private sector. I served tours to both Iraq and Afghanistan with the Army. Afterwards, I provided tactical medical support to local law enforcement. I have worked with EMS and UNM’s Lifeguard program. I recently took EM boards for the 4th time, and I am easing into retirement mode as my 70th birthday approaches.
