Six years US Army (Military police) Multiple deployments in support of United States operations which included Honduras JOint Task Force Bravo, Operation Just Cause (Panama and the removal of General Manuel Noriega), Operation Desert Shield/ Desert Storm and the liberation of Kuwait and other unmentioned deployments. Employed by the Arizona Cardinals for 21 years where I supported all team activities, and operated and managed one of the premier NFL teams training facilities, assisted in the design and construction of their practice dome and supported construction of their state of the art stadium built in Glendale, Az along with the first of its kind roll out football field in North America. After leaving the AZ Cardinals, went on to work for Sister Alele O Sullivan (MD) in establishing and growing a medical respite facility and medical clinic to multiple respites and clinics which serve the extensive homeless population in Phoenix and partnered with local hospitals to provide a means to help and hope for the future. With inspiration from this growth, I partnered into a mechanical contracting company with an emphasis of philanthropy working and conducting business with multiple non profits which included Senior Living, Churches, Arizona shelter Services, Circle the City and many more which was successful for a few years before I stepped out of that role and took on the facilities management of a Veterinary Hospital in Glibert, Az where growth of the 10 business housed in the complex exploded in growth during Covid which I remained until moving to Carmel where I have worked for REI Property Management in Carmel managing multiple properties which included the Tarkington Theater and Allied Solutions and later Assisted Living facilities in the Indianapolis area until recently at the beginning of the year I turned my primary focus back to my daughter as she prepared to graduate.
