Why GT? (What led you to this path? And what keeps you going?)
When presented with the opportunity to join the team at Guardian Tracking, I was excited to consider the possibilities for the next chapter in my career. Mike and Leon served as mentors to me at the police department as I came up through the ranks. Their shared commitment to excellence and the great value they placed on positive relationships influenced me greatly and in large part contributed to my success as a leader. Guardian Tracking truly reflects their commitment to excellence and building positive relationships. Having completed a very fulfilling career as a police officer, I am excited for the opportunity to now work with a team of dedicated professionals here at Guardian Tracking. Having used Guardian Tracking as a supervisor and administrator, I know firsthand that when used effectively, Guardian Tracking can positively impact employee performance, job satisfaction, and facilitate healthy organizational communication.
When you’re not working, what can you be found doing?
When not working, I enjoy camping with my wife Susie and playing with our loving chocolate lab.
