“It’s going to be nice when I come back,” he says. “I’ll be able to share different stories and experiences.”
Speaking of experiences, Tafta enjoyed another one in August 2013 when he served as one of 10 elite security guards for Taylor Swift when she performed at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines.
“She was very down to Earth and still a high school girl at heart,” Tafta said. “You could really tell that she loves doing what she does.”
That event proceeded without incident. Tafta doubts that will be the case on hot Miami nights this summer, but he’s eager to get started.
“It definitely gets dicey in that area,” he says. “It’s going to be an eye-opening experience.”
