I'm a fun-loving car enthusiast and an adrenaline junky with a very creative and competitive spirit. Put those things together, and you get my own brand of automotive mayhem!
Being an adrenaline junky seems to run in the family. My grandfather climbed mountains all over the world, and will probably forever hold the record as the oldest man to climb El Capitan in Yosemite, at the age of 81. In my younger days I climbed up, over and down the 50 foot tall O’s in “wood” of the Hollywood sign. Of course, my 600' face first rappel down the Hoover Dam face was probably the most exhilarating thing I've ever done. It was better than jumping out of a plane at 10,000 feet, or cliff diving 75 feet into frigid water in the Sierra Nevada.
I am the second oldest of nine kids and have been married for over 11 years to the same beautiful woman. When I was a teenager my family did missionary work in China and that allowed me the opportunity to climb the Great Wall of China. I have done volunteer work in Kingston, Jamaica and Pisco, Peru (after an earthquake had struck the area) A couple of weeks after Katrina hit New Orleans, Louisiana, I did volunteer work in there too. I teach Sunday school at my church (a non-denominational Christian Church). My faith is deeply rooted, and I strive to do what's right.
Over the last 15 years I have supported my racing and stunt habits by serving as city and highway patrol officer and been a part of two different SWAT teams. I currently can be seen patrolling downtown Washington, DC on horse back full time any time of the year. I have had the honor of leading Presidential motorcades from Andrews Air Force Base to the White House and also protecting the President of the United States of America at Camp David.
While upholding the law I have been photographed several times. One time was with President Bill Clinton. See Celebrity Meetings for further pictures. One time I was cast as the bad guy The older female demonstrator in the picture was beating my chest in an effort to arrest her, which I didn’t do. I once arrested a woman who open-hand slapped my face and I learned while listening to the local news radio stations that I had apparently used “martial arts” on her.
I have been a team sniper, rappelled from towers and helicopters, followed an instructor’s request to shop down a tree with a full auto machine gun, knocked down a door with three locks during a drug raid, maintained and driven Armored Personal Carriers, served numerous search warrants on the homes of armed and dangerous criminals, been part of quite a few vehicle and foot pursuits, and….well I have a lot of “war stories”, but I’ll save them for the book.
