I am proudest of: My growth as a person in the military and my growth in my faith over the years. I have had great mentors in both my professional and personnel life that have helped and guide me to be the person I am today. I am grateful for everyone who has invested in me!

People may be surprised to know this about me: I really enjoy bowling, and my team won 1st place this last season.
