Who am I?

I solve problems. I am an experienced paramedic educator working for one of the best 911 agencies in the country; I develop websites and web applications as a freelancer; I occasionally take photos, and I always view life as an adventure.

My goal in life is to glorify God by working hard, working well, and making a genuine difference in people's lives. If I can help you through my skill set, please let me know.

Pursuing Excellence

I've never been one to stop learning and growing. I aspire to be a quiet professional: giving my work 100% and letting its excellence speak for itself.

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."Robert A. Heinlein


I currently work as Senior Clinical Supervisor at Cypress Creek EMS, a busy suburban/urban 911 provider in Northwest Harris County, Texas. We consistently lead the country in clinical excellence, research, STEMI and trauma care, and community outreach. As a member of the Clinical/Education department, I am responsible for supporting our mission through data analysis, quality (QA/QI), continuing education development, and teaching our EMT-Basic and Paramedic classes.
