About Me

Who am I? 

About 8 years ago, I was a young, newly-minted Staff Sergeant in the United States Air Force doing physical security program management. No matter what assignment I was given, I seemed to always be supervising young Airmen. What struck me most about them was their increasing disinterest in the field of security – a job we’d all voluntarily swore to do to the best of our ability. During this time, I was a member of the American Society for Industrial Security, International and exposed to the many facets of our industry and made extraordinary contacts. In an effort to defeat this fatigue and disenchantment, I created this blog to better educate and tell my Airmen and the public about emerging and original security ideas and applications. Almost a decade later, I’m still at it.

I've been on international television, contributed to a bestselling book, quoted in national publications, and my opinions on security matters are sought routinely by my peers. During my time in the US Air Force, I performed duties in security operations, security program and project management, basic criminal investigative support, and law enforcement operations. I'm also a 9/11 veteran and was working on a post on September 11.

Through this blog, I have interviewed various members of the security industry and tested a few products. I provide commentary on relevant and current security and law enforcement topics and give advice on matters related to personal security, cybercrime, physical security, and counterterrorism.

So you're some kind of "expert"?

Please, take a moment and have a look at what I’ve written thus far. I’m no expert. Far from it. However, I speak with 14 years experience having performed or being intimately familiar with the many facets of our industry.

I ask one other thing – don’t just read the material. At the end of the day, after it’s all said and done, we’re having a dialogue. So if you agree or disagree feel free to use this blog as a platform to do that. Finally, welcome aboard!
