Bio 

A summary of a my career? I entered the Army Reserve as a Heavy Anti-Armor Infantryman with NO intentions of staying or ever going full-time in the Army. After completing my Bachelor of Arts, I found I love being a soldier and ended up going Active Duty in Recruiting. In my heart, I will always be an Infantryman but in my career I spent all my Active Duty time in Recruiting.
