I'm retired military and spent 20 years in the US Navy. I was a member of SEAL Teams Three and Five as well as the Naval Special Warfare Center (NSWC) where I did a tour as a SEAL instructor. I taught firearms, tactic's and explosives on basic and advanced levels to other SEAL team members. During this time I also became certified as a Master Training Specialist. After completing my tour at NSWC I returned to SEAL Team Three and deployed to Iraq. In summary, I completed 6 over sea's deployments to South East Asia and the Middle East.
After leaving military service I began contracting for the CIA performing a position depicted in the movie 13 Hours In Benghazi. I did this work for 7 years, completing approximately 1000 clandestine operations; In the process, I became relied upon as a tactical operations expert for the country of Afghanistan. In 2014, I was awarded the Agency Seal Medal for my role during a hostile attack on CIA personnel.
In 2015, I started a company known as Red Frog. Initially, I provided Active Shooter response solutions for schools and law enforcement officers. In 2016, my focus transitioned to soley providing tactical training for law enforcement tactical teams conducting seminars, force-on-force and live fire training. In 2017, I also began training military and civilians in basic and advanced use of firearms. During this time I also periodically performed private security work.
In 2020, I started a new company known as High Value Target LLC. A new training paradigm was created based upon principals consistent with modern neuroscience and what science has uncovered about how we learn and react under extreme stress. The 3D targets are advanced training aides which significantly enhance the quality of training.
