A little about me. I was born and raised in Phoenix Arizona. Graduated from Sunnyslope High School in 1990. While I was at Sunnyslope I was active in the AFJROTC program there. After high school I enlisted in the USAF as a firefighter and served for 23 years.
During my career in the USAF I was assigned at Edwards AFB CA (90-92) Sheyma AB AK (92-93) Avaino AB Italy (93-96 and 04-07) Peterson AFB Co (96-2000) Goodfellow AFB TX, in which I was an instructor at the Department of Defense Fire Academy (2000-04) and Davis-Monthan AFB AZ (07-2013). I also have spent time in Spain, Saudi Arabia and Colombia. When I retired from the USAF I worked a little bit as a Fire Science Instructor at Adobe Mountain, which is a safe school and also I worked at State Farm Insurance. Being an AFJROTC instructor is my dream job.
I have two A.S. degrees, one in Fire Science and the second one Instructor of Technology and Military Science from the United States Air Force. I also attended Grand Canyon University where I earned a B.S in Public Safety Administration and a M.S in Leadership with an emphasis in Disaster Preparedness and Execuitve Fire Leadership.
