Biography - Kevin B. Metcalf
Kevin earned his law degree after working in law enforcement for more than 20 years and the Army Reserve/National Guard for more than 10 years. He currently works as a deputy prosecuting attorney handling felony cases. He also has an interest in interview techniques and non-verbal communication. He hopes the focus on interview techniques and non-verbal communication will help him figure out what his girls are up to as they approach their teen years.
Kevin left federal law enforcement as a single custodial father to raise his two girls in a stable environment. He is currently working on the basics of hair braiding and is learning essential grade school fashion concepts from his 7 year old daughter.
After 9/11, Kevin worked as a Federal Air Marshal and served as a team leader for several international missions. He has extensive experience and training in advanced firearms, operational tactics, close-quarter combat, surveillance, counter-surveillance, emergency medicine, and related legal and administrative elements such as intelligence and mission reporting. Kevin has found all of this training and experience extremely helpful in surviving sleep-overs, Girl Scout events, and birthday parties.
His law enforcement career includes experience as a Border Patrol Agent, police officer, SWAT team member, law enforcement instructor, and Field Training Officer. He has received numerous commendations from various agencies such as the FBI for fugitive apprehension and the Army, Federal Air Marshal Service, and Border Patrol for leadership. Despite all of this, Kevin has discovered that it is still insufficient training and experience for parenting two small girls.
Kevin competed in boxing, kickboxing, grappling, and mixed martial arts for many years. After many beatings over the years, he decided to focus on something that would allow him to conserve his remaining brain activity. He is a Pekiti Tirsia Kali Instructor (www.ptkgo.com) under Tim Waid and Leo Gage Jr. Pekiti Tirsia focuses on close-quarters combat with an emphasis on edged-weapons. He currently trains law enforcement, military personnel, and specialized units with the Girl Scouts (primarily Brownies and Daisy Scouts).
