My childhood began as a Navy Commander's son. My three siblings and my parents moved around the country & world every few years. By age eleven I was babysitting neighborhood kids and had a paper route delivering ‘The Washington Post’ living in Maryland, just outside DC. At age fifteen I was hired as a lifeguard & childcare provider by the YMCA in Memphis, Tennessee. I worked there for three years. At age nineteen I was hired as a Sheriffs Cadet (paid intern position with a commission), in Spokane, WA . During my two years service there I was assigned to several positions including Search & Rescue as a scuba diver, boat patrol, and fingerprint analyst (lol-prior to computers). I Graduated WSU, Political Science - Criminal Science 1983. I was hired by Seattle PD in November 1984 and retired August 2016 with 31 years of service as a first responder. My life’s interests have a foundation in public service that follow me into my senior years.
My background in public safety has naturally steered my post-career interests to products and services that can increase safety for the public, especially babies. Babies can’t look out for themselves. Parents and manufacturers have to act to do that. I hope my company can be a positive factor towards that end.
