Jon Leon Guerrero is an executive protection operator, security consultant, private investigator, co-founder of the Taurus Guard investigation and protection firm, and the host of the podcast, Break It Down Show, along with Pete A. Turner[3]

 

Leon Guerrero (or LG, an abbreviation by which many Leon Guerreros come to be known) was born on Guam on November 29, 1969.  His parents moved their family to Vallejo, California in 1975 for his father to pursue a career at Mare Island Naval Shipyard.  He has, while working in a variety of locations around the United States, maintained his primary residence in the San Francisco Bay Area ever since.

 

As a child in racially diverse and culturally rich Vallejo, LG discovered and developed an interest in the performing arts, especially music.  This was a popular pursuit in the area, which had previously given rise to Johnny Otis, Sly and the Family Stone, and Con Funk Shun, but was especially prominent at Hogan High School, which was at that time attended by the likes of Michael Colòn, Charleston Quinn, Phil Deckard, Adam Molinar, E-40, Paisley Hinton, D-Shot, B-Legit, Cori Jacobs, Derek Jones, Baby Bash, Mac Dre, Celly Cel, and Suga T.  Starting his musical endeavors as a drummer and percussionist, he later became a DJ specializing in funk and hip hop in venues all around the Bay Area.  With an introduction by good friend and musical mentor, James Earley, he eventually landed at KZCT (Ozcat Radio), where he became known for eclectic musical sets and interviews that leaned on social commentary.

 

Concurrently, LG led a professional life in marketing R&D, Data mining, and personnel development for financial services providers including Paymap, First Data, and Western Union.  He became Account Executive at YapStone, Inc.., and then VP-SM at Fischer Group before cofounding Taurus Guard with Jerry Bull, Eric Luke, and Kelly Schroeder (all of whom had created extensive and decorated careers in law enforcement).

 

His association with Jerry Bull had germinated years prior in a philanthropic mission, when they, along with LG's brother Joshua, combined their shared passion for martial arts with their desire to create positive influence in their community in the founding of Black Dragon Kenpo Youth Organization.  Recognized in 1998 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, BDKYO introduced over 2,100 at-risk teens and kids to martial arts training at no charge as a way to learn discipline, foster physical fitness and personal achievement, and avoid the temptations of drugs and criminal behavior.  The organization, in its 16-year span, gave a route to scores of young people to experience accomplishment, travel, and independence, and learn communication, self-expression, and healthy conflict resolution by respected mentors in a safely supervised setting.  

 

Jon continues to produce and host the Break It Down Show with Pete A. Turner.  The podcast features conversations with accomplished guests in the fields of music, cinema, comedy, literature, public policy, warfare, sports, self-improvement, and other intellectual pursuits.  Previous and recurring guests include Jay Mohr, Sly Stone, Greg Proops, Nathan East, John Robinson (drummer), Billy Corben, Angelo MooreD'wayne Wiggins, and Tara Kemp.

 

He also maintains his post at Taurus Guard as a personal security operator, conducting investigations, and guiding the company's growth strategy and marketing efforts.  He consults other companies on security, strategic growth, and the use of media in marketing.  He has raised two sons, and he and his wife still live in the Bay Area.
