Why I joined the Military: I joined the military as a corpsman to learn and grow as a person. I wanted to be a part of my family’s tradition of serving honorably and being part of something bigger than myself. Once I was in the military I did it because of the men I worked with; for the men who became my brothers.
Why I joined Handmade By Heroes: I joined Handmade By Heroes to work with other veterans and to be a part of the community. I believe it’s a great thing that brings veterans together.

My favorite sports team and why…Colorado Avalanche because they’re the best team ever.
