Born and raised in southern Ohio. Joined the Air Force straight out of high school where I was stationed at Seymour Johnson AFB. From there I deployed 4 times overseas to include Iraq and Afghanistan. In Iraq, my job was delta truck gunner conducting area security, escorts, and route clearance alongside Nick and Tommy. During my time, I felt great pride in the missions we were conducting and established some of the greatest friendships and camaraderie that have lasted throughout my career. In 2012, I separated from active duty and moved on to the reserve component in Western NY. After 6 years of weekend warrior details and 1 deployment with the Niagara Falls team, I joined the full time AGR where I still serve. From the time I separated in 2012 till recent years, I found myself struggling to find my purpose with both my career and my life. I reconnected with Nick and found my place in the Warriors Next Adventure along side Tommy , Will, and Dan whom I had the privilege of serving with. Being a husband to an amazing woman and father of 3 incredible children, I am not only able to help veterans find their purpose but also instill these same values in the lives of my own.
