I am an Agent of the Nevada Gaming Control Board, assigned to the Enforcement Division. All that means is I am a state police officer who investigates crimes and regulatory issues in licensed gaming establishments. Think trooper without the freeway.

But I do have showgurlz!

I previously retired from the St Louis Metropolitan Police Department after 28 years. I moved west 5 years ago, and began my new career. 33 years total in law enforcement this November.

Retired after 20 years working on missile guidance systems in the USAF . Started my second career in auto body and painting . And spent the last 19 years doing R & D and engineering for a Cobra replica manufacturer . When that company was sold and moved to Texas I retired for good .
