About the name

In Japanese folk lore, a Baku is a spirit who devours dreams and nightmares. It has had various forms, but is most commonly depicted with an elephant’s head, tusks, and trunk, with horns and tiger’s claws.

As security practitioners in any capacity, our role is to protect the people, assets, mission, and culture of the organizations that we work for and with. As a consultant and trusted partner, protecting the mission of decision-makers, and culture of organizations, often begins with a simple question: "what keeps you up at night?"

So, what keeps you up at night?


With 12 years of experience in private security operations in diverse sectors, including technology, energy, and retail, with a diverse array of challenges, compliance requirements, and incidents, I would be happy to help you find solutions to your challenges.

Along the way I have been an active member of the American Society for Industrial Security (ASIS) International. Actively volunteering and collaborating with industry professionals in local chapters and obtaining the Certified Protection Professional (CPP), Physical Security Professional (PSP), and Professional Certified Investigator (PCI) designations.
