While I have worked in law enforcement for my entire adult life, I have never wanted my job to define me. I am first a Christian, then a thankful husband, a proud father, and a delighted grandpa. In my career I have tried to embrace the Christian values of justice, mercy, and humility. Though Room 1203 is written as a true crime story with police anecdotes and a few of my failures, I hope it still honors my faith.

Because this book is in the true crime genre, my experience in law enforcement dose become important. I have had an incredible career that has constantly reminded me of the importance of continued personal and professional development to better attend to the needs of the communities I have had the opportunities to serve.

My career started when I enlisted in the U.S. Army Military Police Corps, serving at Ft. Gordon, GA; Baumholder, Germany; and various bases throughout Bosnia in 1996.

I got out of the Army 1998, and within a few months I was hired as a Police Officer with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. I had an incredibly fortunate career receiving my first detective assignment just four years after being hired. I quickly rose through the detective hierarchy getting assigned to the Robbery Section within a year of making detective. This was not the pinnacle for detective work, but it was close to it. While working in the Robbery Section I had the opportunity to work on multiple high-profile cases that ended up on CourtTV and America's Most Wanted. It was while I was a Robbery Detective that I was assigned the armed robbery and kidnapping investigation that resulted in O.J. Simpson being sentenced to prison for 15-33 years.

After serving as a Robbery Detective for five years, I was fortunate enough to get assigned to LVMPD's Criminal Intelligence Section and work on the FBI Political Corruption Task Force.

After retiring from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, my family and I moved to the Pacific Northwest. In 2018, I started in a new branch of law enforcement working as a probation officer in Washington State. I have found that I truly enjoy getting to help individuals who want help, to come alongside them and encourage them.

I am passionate about my faith and I love to engage in discussions about how Christians can serve in the criminal justice system with loving accountability. I also love spending time with my family and enjoying the outdoor activities in the northwest.

There is no way I can write a biography about myself without pointing to my wife, Cein Caldwell (Maas). She is my best friend and a gift from God that I treasure. I am grateful for her strength and support. We have three kids, Rebekah, McKenzie, and Owen, who constantly give me reason to be proud, and they are constant reminders of what an remarkable mother my wife is to them. My oldest daughter is married to her husband, Jason Knoble, and they have given two perfect grandchildren, Avery and Oliver.

And I'm a Dodgers fan.
