He most recently served as the liaison between the National Center for Security & Preparedness and the Oriskany, New York-based State Preparedness Training Center for the State University of New York at Albany.

He was honored with a proclamation by the U.S. House of Representatives recognizing his contributions to Herkimer County, was given the Distinguished Service Award by the Society of Professional Investigators, and won the Golden Anniversary Chancellor’s Recognition Award by the State University of New York for his leadership and commitment to the people of New York state.
