Who is the most positive influence in your life and why?
My wife is the most positive influence in my life because she helpsĀ keep problems in perspective.

What would you like to accomplish during your Air Force career?
My goals are to make the work environment better for my Airmen and improve opportunities for accomplishing their goals. Also, to pass on my knowledge to them so they can carry on the mission.

Where is the most interesting place you have traveled and why do you feel that way?
Jordan is the most interesting place I have traveled. We were part of a joint training exercise, providing air refueling support to the Royal Jordanian Air Force. It was an opportunity to learn and interact with one of our important allies in the Middle East.

What is your favorite book/ movie and why?
"The Last Man on the Moon," by Eugene Cernan, who was the Apollo 17 mission commander. The book gives insight into the NASA space program during the 1960's from an astronaut's perspective. I like the book because these individuals came together as a team and accomplished the goals of the Apollo moon landings. It also shows the stresses it placed on family life while taking on such work.

If you had the opportunity to meet anyone in the world, who would it be and why?
That is a great question for a crew to ask on a long flight across the ocean in a KC-135 Stratotanker ... I don't want to be selfish and narrow it down to one person. I am happy to talk to almost anybody and find out who they are.
