I have lived in Washington County for almost my entire life. I went into the trades after high school but after nearly 14 years in the construction industry I made a career change and became a police officer with the Tigard Police Department in 2010. I am currently assigned to the Commercial Crimes Detective Unit. When I am not at work I enjoy working on vehicles and home projects and spending time with my wife and two pups.
