A seven year veteran with the Arlington Police Department in Arlington, Texas. He was appointed to the motorcycle division three months prior to his death. He was described as a devoted father and husband, and a fitness buff. He had a black belt in jujitsu and was an amateur wrestler and weightlifter. He also spoke Spanish and was working with another officer to learn Vietnamese.

Just before joining the Arlington Police Department he earned his bachelor's degree in criminal justice at Midwestern State University in his hometown in 2001. In 2005, he was nominated as patrol officer of the year in the city's east division. He had 19 commendations.

A former field training officer, he helped train 12 to 15 recruits in a two-year span. He also was a member of the department's tactical unit.
