My career in the Private Sector started back in 2016. After moving up in the ranks, from graveyard lead officer, to becoming the Head of Security for a Forbes listed and world renown mineral springs resort.
In my nearly 5 years in the hospitality security industry, I have had the pleasure of working and coordinating with celebrity security teams, political and private security teams, local law enforcement and the United States Secret Service, some in numerous occasions.
In 2018, while still managing hospitality security, I became part of a California Bail Enforcement Agents group, as a private contractor. Although it was a very different atmosphere, as a breach team member, it allowed me to learn and develop many more tactical, medical, and de-escalation skills, all skills that I could also implement in the day-to-day security operations in and for private companies. However, that took a turn for the worst in early 2020, when serving an arrest warrant went south. I was unfortunately injured on the job and from that point forward, I proceeded to dedicate my time, knowledge, and new experiences to the hospitality industry full time.
In late 2021, I parted ways with the hospitality industry for the first time and proceeded to take a job offer for a very prominent and renown, family owned and operated, private security company in Southern California. A Company that prides itself in all forms of security services, serving the Coachella Valley with event security, armed and un-armed security, hospitality security, patrol units and Security in the Cannabis industry, to name a few of its services. In my eyes, it was my opportunity to put all my experience to good use, both field and admin experience could be beneficial to my new management role whilst taking, yet another, learning experience for my self as well.
It has been a pleasure taking on a new role for O’Linn Security, and I look forward to our exponential growth.
