I have been with EMS for the past 43 years. My extensive work experience includes time in the municipal setting as a Flight Paramedic in Ventura County Sheriff Department Air Unit, as well as having worked for private sector 911 Paramedic services.
I began Set Medic work in 1984 then later joined I.A.T.S.E. Local 767/80 in 2001, and have already seen a broad spectrum of the movie industry; initially as a construction medic, and then working with such diverse aspects as second unit, rigging electric, rigging grips and SFX departments. In addition to working as a Set Medic and keying shows all over Los Angeles and Ventura Counties.
I have been an active EMS and safety instructor, an OSHA authorized trainer to teach construction and general industry occupational safety and health standards and policy, authorized Medic First Aid Training Center and ASHI American Safety & Health Institute Training Center.
