Why did you join the military? To commit to something that would benefit not only myself, but others around me.
Where do you see yourself in 10 or 20 years? I just want to travel the world some more and/or start a family.
What do you do for fun here? I spend most of my time either in the gym or out traveling the country to practice photography.
What's your favorite Air Force memory or story? Being in Honor Guard at Wright-Patterson AFB is where I saw first-hand the commitments and sacrifices we all make. Performing ceremonies for service men and women aged from 18 to 80 gave me the inspiration to try harder for those before me and set an example for those after me.
What accomplishment are you most proud of? Earning Staff Sergeant and putting on earlier this month.
Who are your role models? My best friend from home, Bob Leip, and my first supervisor, TSgt Anthony Sayers for pushing me to do things which I didn't even know I was capable.
