Western Joint Ambulance District (WestJAD) in suburban Cincinnati...the best EMS gig I've ever had, bar none.

Trauma Data Manager for Level 1 Trauma Service at University Hospital in Cincinnati
My Training:
I've learned a lot on the streets, most of it more important than what I've learned in books. I learned to be among the best at whatever I do and, as a result, wound up in a great job overseeing Ohio's statewide trauma system and running the research section of the EMS Division.
About Me
I went into EMS at age 19 because chicks dig guys in uniform. I fell in love with the job despite the fact that this was not borne out by experience.

My primary hobby is nature photography (see profile photo).
