My full time "day job" is in law enforcement. I first started as a police officer back in 1999. Like most cops, I started on patrol and have worked up the ranks in a variety of positions.
For most of my career, I have been one of our department's evidence technicians. Some places call the job crime scene investigator or CSI.
In addition to police work, I spent some time as a firefighter. As someone with both a fire and police background I find myself being the local de facto fire/arson investigator.
Most folks would say CrossFit and books are my two primary hobbies. My enthusiasm for fitness has led me to get various coaching and personal training certifications. I don't have a regular coaching schedule but do train some people once in a blue moon.
As an author I have three novels published. At the time of writing this I have four additional novels at various points in production. In addition I provide consultation to various publishers and authors on police procedure to improve manuscripts. Finally I am on the Board Of Directors for the Public Safety Writers Association.
