I started shooting competitively in 2005 and I have been hooked ever since. I started with IDPA, and went into USPSA and 3-Gun, it is now difficult to decide what to shoot any given weekend.

I am the President of Arnold Rifle and Pistol Club. I became a Match Director for IDPA in 2008 and hosted major matches every year since 2009. I became the Area Coordinator for IDPA in 2013 and stepped down as MD to run IDPA for Missouri and Iowa. I am a 5 gun Expert shooter and a Master shooter in SSP.

My guns of choice are plentiful, but prefer my STI 5.0 Cusanelli Custom for both IDPA and USPSA. 3-Gun favorites are the STI, his Benelli M2 and his Rhino Arms AR-15.

When not shooting I am an airline pilot for American Airlines (former TWA), a Federal Flight Deck Officer (a kinda Air Marshall in the cockpit), and a flight instructor for Flight Safety International. Husband to my life long best friend Gina, father of three wonderful adult kids and grandfather of two great little boys!
