    I was born and raised in Western Colorado, on the edge of the majestic Rocky Mountains. After graduating from Colorado State University with an Electrical Engineering degree while simultaneously completing the Reserve Officer Training Corp program. Upon graduating, I was commissioned into the U.S. Air Force as an Aircraft Maintenance Officer and served for six years on active duty in Combat Search and Rescue units in both Las Vegas, Nevada and Mildenhall, England. During that period, I deployed numerous times to Iraq, Afghanistan, Turkey, and 8 other countries across Europe and the Middle East. Most recently to the Horn of Africa in 2015. I separated from active duty in October 2003 to pursue a civilian career as a helicopter pilot. Currently, I fly helicopters in Alaska doing glacier tours and oil and gas support.
   At this time I am currently serving as a Lieutenant Colonel in the Alaska Air National Guard as an Aircraft Maintenance Operations Flight Commander assigned to the 176th Rescue Wing at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska.
   Having witnessed first hand the long term effects of war on our military men and women, I am honored to be working with my fellow brothers and sisters. For a wounded veteran, the true battle just begins when they get home. Rick and I are committed to making Battle Dawgs and Alaska their healing grounds.
