Bio 

I'm currently a Master Leader Course facilitator. I also facilitate CFD-IC. I was the Chief Instructor for the Infantry school at Camp Shelby, MS before and thoroughly enjoyed my time there. I spent most of my career in the 155th ABCT as everything from a medic, Infantry squad leader, platoon sergeant, master gunner, and finally as an ops NCO. Held a certification in phlebotomy and EMT-B
