I am a PhD trained Biochemist and a paramedic with an academic appointment at the level of Assistant Professor at the UTHSCSA Department of Emergency Health Sciences. I also have cross-appointments in the UTHSCSA Medical School in the Departments of Emergency Medicine and Surgery. I currently conduct clinical research in the area of prehospital medicine. Clinically, I work as a civilian training officer in the Office of the Medical Director for the UTHSCSA Department of Emergency Health Sciences and the San Antonio Fire Department.
I have more than 25 years of active service in Emergency Medical Services progressing from field medic, to instructor, currently a clinical researcher. I am the principle investigator on over 10 active IRB approved protocols including two clinicaltrials.gov approved trials. I am also the architect of both the Cardiac Arrest registry for the San Antonio Fire Department Office of the Medical Director, and for the Southwest Texas regional Advisory Councils Cardiac Care Committee STEMI Registry. I have over thirty peer-reviewed publications and more than 60 presentations that have resulted from these efforts. The highlights of my presentation history include two podium research lectures at the National Association of EMS Physicians and serving as an invited Speaker to the Vietnam Society of Emergency Medicine. I have also presented posters at multiple national and international scientific forums.
Personally, I am a husband and father of two. I am a black-belt in Taekwondo, a hunter and fisherman, an am nurturing a small peach orchard.
