As the owner of Osage Training & Consulting, I place a great deal of emphasis on making complex ideas and techniques simple. Whether it is testifying as an expert in a use of force case where someone's freedom is on the line or presenting an advanced carbine tactic where someone's very life may ultimately be on the line, neither client will be served unless the point is not only made but trasmitted in a form that makes a lasting difference.


With a career that began in 1995 as a U.S. Marine Corps military policeman and progressed on to that of a federal agent, state trooper, deputy sheriff, and military combat veteran helicopter pilot, the services I ensure that OTC provides are counted as the best.


I am deeply involved in every service aspect of Osage Training & Consulting. While we maintain a network of professionals on whom we call and depend to assist, I am physically present during every firearm and tactic training course, law enforcement and military presentation, and it will be me that takes the witness stand to testify in cases on behalf of our use of force clients.


The survivor of multiple lethal force incidents wherein I have been forced to present and apply deadly force, many of my firearm, tactic, and combative course students have gone on to survive their own deadly encounters in both military combat and on the streets of not only America but foreign lands as well. I know that our business is a serious one.


An military contractor and helicopter instructor pilot, I continue to work the streets as a part-time patrol officer, trainer, and SWAT Team member for a municipal law enforcement agency in southeast Alabama.
