Deputy Director (Governor's Office)
2013 marks 40 years in law enforcement. During these past 40 years, I have been fortunate to have worked for some great leaders and visionaries like former Harris County District Attorney Johnny B. Holmes, Attorney General Greg Abbott, former Gov. George W. Bush, Gov., Rick Perry and DPS Director Steven C. McCraw. I received an Associate and Bachelor of Science degree in criminal justice from the University of Houston and a Master of Science degree in quality systems management from the National Graduate School. I am equally proud to have received an Honorary Doctor of Philosophy in International Police Studies from the Baghdad Police College in 2007. This was after having served two years in Iraq working with the U. S. Department of Justice and Department of Defense and assigned to work with the Ministry of Interior, assisting in the reestablishment and development of the Iraqi National Police and 13 Regional Police Academies spread throughout Iraq. My law enforcement career followed four years on active duty with the U. S. Marine Corps (1969-1973) and six years in the Marine Corps and Navy Reserves and 25 years as a volunteer with the Texas State Guard. While in the Texas State Guard, I served as Commander of the Texas Maritime Regiment and was promoted to Brigadier General by Gov. Perry in 2009.
