What led you to join the military?
I think that service to community and country are the most important things you can do with your life. I have enjoyed every second of it. It’s really cool being a part of a team, surrounded by such awesome people, working towards a common cause.
What has been the most impactful moment in your career so far?
Graduation from Basic Military Training was my most impactful moment. Just seeing all that hard work and effort coming to fruition and being part of that tight-knit unit, the bonds forged through hardship. It was a really cool and powerful experience.
What are your hobbies?
I play tabletop role-playing games, video games and do volunteer work. I am a green rope, while not really a hobby, it is something I’m passionate about. I also do Brazilian jujitsu on the weekends.

As much as I can, with the time that I have. I want to go everywhere, do everything, meet everybody and get the best grades that I can.
