WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
I’m originally from Fayetteville, Georgia but now I live in Canton, Georgia.
WHY DID YOU JOIN?
I joined to be a part of something bigger than myself and to feel that what I’m doing is making an impact on lives around the world.
FAVORITE AIR FORCE EXPERIENCE?
While participating in Atlantic Resolve in Poland, I, along with a few others, were tasked with assisting the Latvian Air Force in getting their emergency response/runway incursion certification so they could use their new runway.
WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES?
My newest hobby is photography. I take my camera everywhere and I snap as many pictures as I can. Other than that, I like hiking and fishing.
I haven’t sat down to really think about long term professional goals, but short term, I’m currently working on NCO Academy coursework, so I’d like to finish that in the near future.
BEST ADVICE EVER RECEIVED?
If you want your career to progress and not become stagnant, always take on roles and perform your job as if you are currently at the next higher rank.
SOMETHING NOBODY KNOWS ABOUT YOU?
I love watching classic films. Anything that ranges from about 1930-1960ish.
