A: I guess it’s one of those things where most people know what they want to do when they grow up. I guess I just inherently always knew what I wanted to be when I grew up was a police officer. So, when I went to [high] school and went to college, the University of Maryland, that’s what I went to school for. When I got out, that’s what I applied to. Then, I got on to Fairfax County and I guess the rest is history from there.


Q: What other jobs within the police force have you held, other than the SRO?

 A: I’ve been here [working for the city for] three years and here I was just on the street, which means I was just working patrol for that time. For the county, I did the same thing there: worked patrol, was an investigator, was a road supervisor, got to do some special assignments within there, but for the most part that’s it.


Q: Which has been your favorite other police job? Why?

 A: When I was with the county, I was a crime scene detective and I got to do a lot of neat things there. That was one of the things that I always wanted to do and I got the opportunity to do it. It was a lot of fun.


Q: Why did you decide to come to Fairfax High School?

 A: I decide? Well, that’s the thing, I started out at Lanier and was there for the first three months. So it really wasn’t a decision that I made to come to Fairfax. It was more that our boss’s command staff decided that a switch was needed to be made and here I am.


Q: How has your time here been so far?

 A: Great! I mean, that’s the easiest way to put it. It’s been great. It’s been a good time. I mean, having to get acclimated to a new place, being the new guy, it’s been a work in progress.


Q: What’s one fun or interesting fact about yourself?

A: Still, as an old man, I still like to play sports. I’m still active in sports on my days off.
