17th Training Wing Public Affairs:
What led you to join the military?
I always wanted to join and serve. I like being a part of a team and this is one of the biggest teams you can join.
What has been the most impactful moment in your career so far?
I would say our parade at basic military training. We had the Honorable Heather Wilson preside over our ceremony. There were also generals in attendance, and to have that much leadership involved was great. It was cool to be joining the military in front of so many people that have already left a legacy. It was inspiring to see the pinnacle, and to know that everyone started where we were standing at one point and you can climb that high.
What are your hobbies?
I like to read, play board games, hike, anything outdoors and spending time with my wife.
What do you want to accomplish during your time here at Goodfellow Air Force Base?
I want to learn my job to the best of my ability and to have a good time learning. I don’t think that I will be able to become red rope with the time that I have left, but becoming a yellow rope is definitely something I have my eye on.
Is there any advice or anything you would like to share?
Just give it your all every day. Never get complacent, complacency is what kills success. If you can avoid falling into the trap of being comfortable than you can do more than you thought you could.
