Greetings Payne Panther Family! It is a fantastic experience getting to know the wonderful students here at Payne Junior High.

A little about me…. I have served approximately twenty years in law enforcement, with the last 16.5 years being here at the Gilbert Police Department. I have primarily worked as a patrol officer and have been a senior member of the firearms training unit for most of my time with GPD. Prior to policing, I served with the Army National Guard (in Arizona and Ohio) and obtained my Bachelor of Science degree in Justice Studies, from Arizona State University.

My primary function is to maintain the safety of everyone on campus, with my secondary being to break down the barriers that often exist between today’s youth and law enforcement. I am a full-time father to two teenaged boys, which gives me an edge in being able to connect to your students.

I am supremely grateful for this opportunity to work alongside the students and staff of Payne Junior High and I thank you for the distinct honor of serving as your School Resource Officer.
