About Me
Born into a military family, I served 20 years in the U.S. Army. I’m a retired Staff Sergeant who worked primarily as a Scout Section Sergeant with additional tours of duty as a recruiter and trainer/evaluator on the Bradley Fighting Vehicle. I’ve been married nearly 30 years to my wife, Maria, an Army Major who works at Tripler Army Medical Center. Together, we have four adult sons. An avid chess player, I have lived in varied places as Washington, California, Texas, German, Japan, Korea and Italy.
