1) What made you choose to work in the Security industry?

I have a goal to one day achieve employment with the Toronto Police Service. There is no better way to gain experience and knowledge in the field than gaining employment in the Security industry.

2) Why and how did you choose Primary Response?

I chose Primary Response for their reputation as being one of the most reliable security firms and as being one of the most successful.

3) What advice would you give someone entering the security industry today?

One piece of advice I’d like to give to anyone deciding to take an interest in security is to apply themselves, and to be patient and respectful with clients, staff, officials and the general public. The more an individual conducts themselves in a calm, respectful and professional manner the more they will gain the knowledge and patience of an individual that can assist in any conflict safely and successfully, on or off duty.

4) What do you enjoy most about your job with Primary Response?

I enjoy the responsibility of patrolling and meeting security guards at multiple sites, as they conduct site tasks and duties at their posts. When I arrive to sites to provide supervision I take the opportunity to learn who they are and learn more and more about the specific site post orders. I also enjoy learning from all of the personalities I encounter and building relationships; it helps bring a good relationship between fellow security guards to know one another on a personal level as well.

5) What do you do for fun when you’re not at work?

I am involved in mixed martial arts in my free time. When I am not working at Primary, I am training as an athlete in the sport of Muay Thai. I have been training for about 3 years now and I love the sport. To me, it’s not only something fun but also a profession. I am currently a Semi-professional Muay Thai Boxer. My current Record is 5 Wins/2 Losses and I compete in the weight category of 155 lbs to 160 lbs. I also recently started training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Mixed Martial Arts is my passion and my second job, though I love it. It’s also one of the main ways I keep a healthy work-life balance.

6) Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Within Primary Response I see myself as one the leaders in the company as either an Operations Manager, Training Supervisor or Client Service Manager. I like to think of myself as a good example of reliability, making progress and a strong leader.

In the world of Mixed Martial Arts I see myself as complete professional mixed martial artist and either a world champion or one of the top contenders for a world championship title.

In the world of law enforcement I see myself as a Toronto Police Supervisor.

I have 3 potential outcomes in my journey. I am realist and I know I cannot obtain a career in law enforcement and maintain employment with Primary Response. However I know I can maintain my mixed martial arts career and my employment with Primary Response simultaneously. I have been doing so for the past 2 ½ years now. So, I would say that is the ideal path I would choose for myself.
