My experience as a Police Officer and a Claims Adjuster early in my career have provided a strong foundation for my investigative background. I have lived and worked as a Licensed Private Investigator in the Tampa Bay area since 1990. During that time I’ve seen that no two cases are the same – I continue to learn and grow my skills with each and every assignment.

I am a member of the Florida Association of Legal Investigators (FALI), Carrollwood Area Business Association, Carrollwood Professional Network, and have applied for membership to the National Association of Professional Process Servers (NAPPS). My interests revolve around my family, animals (dogs) and baseball coaching (youth and high school). PDK is a community supporter of the Children's Miracle Network, Alzheimer's Association and Wounded Warrior Project.
