I am from good old Huntington, West Virginia, the home of the Marshall University Thundering Herd! I graduated high school from Huntington High in 1999 and then finally graduated college in 2009. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Web Development from the College of Science at Marshall University.

In between my two graduations, I joined the United States Army. My basic training was in Fort Benning, Georgia then the Advanced Individual Training was in Fort Gordon, Georgia. There, I learned the many ways of programming, setting up, networking and maintaining Satellite Communications. Once I joined my unit, I was soon deployed to Taji, Iraq in September of 2005 to September of 2006 where I honed my skills of being a SATCOM Operator. When I got back, I started planning to finish what I've started, my degree at Marshall University.

Two years later, I recieved my commission and I'm now on my way to Fort Lee, VA for training in the Ordnance branch. I'm proud to say that I'm an Officer of the United States Army and honored to serve my country. I'm also very lucky to have a wonderful wife and two kids to support my career, no matter what path I may choose.
