For the past ten years I've been working in the emergency services. Currently, I am working full time as a Paramedic on a primary 911 ambulance. I am also a volunteer Fire Fighter with a local fire department, and volunteer with a local technical rescue group. Over the years I've been trained to do all sorts of rescue from swift water rescues, to public safety SCUBA diving, to high-angle ropes and rigging. In my time off I am a semi-professional photographer, and enjoy rock climbing, SCUBA diving, mountaineering, and just about any other outdoor activity I can fit in my busy schedule. My first Fenix light was a LD2, which served me faithfully for several years until it got lost during a night-time swift water rescue.
