    I am a retired law enforcement officer, having served 28 years as a Special Agent with the federal government. Two of my last assignments included the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Joint Terrorism Task Force and the United States Attorney’s Anti-Terrorism Advisory Committee. I am trained and certified by the United States Secret Service as a firearms instructor, and worked in that capacity for almost 10 years. I also received advanced rifle training at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, and until my retirement served as my agency’s “sniper” in the State of Michigan. I also bear the title of United States Marine. In 2009 I became an NRA Certified Instructor of Basic Pistol, Home Firearm Safety, and Personal Protection in the Home. My Concealed Pistol License course can be completed in one day. You do not need your own handgun to participate. My fees are reasonable and include continuing access to my expertise. I will hold the lecture portion of the instruction in your home, place of business, or in my classroom. Saturdays and Sundays are the usual days for classes, but I am willing to consider other options in order to fit your schedule. I am also available to develop and conduct non-NRA courses based on the knowledge, skills, and abilities I obtained as a Special Agent and undercover operative. As it is with every instructor listed with MCRGO, safety is my primary concern, and must be yours while participating in my class. Please contact me regarding upcoming courses. Gift certificates are available!

    I am a retired law enforcement officer, having served 28 years as a Special Agent with the federal government. Two of my last assignments included the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Joint Terrorism Task Force and the United States Attorney’s Anti-Terrorism Advisory Committee. I am trained and certified by the United States Secret Service as a firearms instructor, and worked in that capacity for almost 10 years. I also received advanced rifle training at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, and until my retirement served as my agency’s “sniper” in the State of Michigan. I also bear the title of United States Marine. In 2009 I became an NRA Certified Instructor of Basic Pistol, Home Firearm Safety, and Personal Protection in the Home. My Concealed Pistol License course can be completed in one day. You do not need your own handgun to participate. My fees are reasonable and include continuing access to my expertise. I will hold the lecture portion of the instruction in your home, place of business, or in my classroom. Saturdays and Sundays are the usual days for classes, but I am willing to consider other options in order to fit your schedule. I am also available to develop and conduct non-NRA courses based on the knowledge, skills, and abilities I obtained as a Special Agent and undercover operative. As it is with every instructor listed with MCRGO, safety is my primary concern, and must be yours while participating in my class. Please contact me regarding upcoming courses. Gift certificates are available!
