Who is the most positive influence in your life and why?
My father is the most influential person in my life. His work ethic and open-mindedness of other peoples' beliefs and cultures played an essential part in molding me into the person I am today.

What would you like to accomplish during your Air Force career?
I would like to complete my bachelor's degree and pin on master sergeant. Cross-flowing into the KC-10 Extender is also a goal of mine.

Where is the most interesting place you have traveled and why do you feel that way?
While stationed at Ramstein Air Base, Germany, I had the opportunity to go to Morocco. It was surreal watching people who didn't have a lot make the most of their life.

What is your favorite book/ movie and why?
My favorite book is the autobiography of Frederick Douglass. It displays the determination and will power one can have when destined to rise from a situation.

If you have the opportunity to meet anyone in the world, who would it be and why?
Since I'm looking to pursue a career in film once I retire, meeting Jerry Bruckheimer would be awesome. Having him give me insight on the industry could help me get that "lucky" break.
