Who is the most positive influence in your life and why?
My previous supervisor, Staff Sgt. Sean Piper, has been the most positive influence in my life. He was my first supervisor and was always available to help mentor or guide me through rough situations. He's pretty entertaining and always kept the office laughing.

What would you like to accomplish during your Air Force career?
I would like to accomplish the same as most people, acquire a Community Collage of the Air Force and bachelor's degree in my career field. I also want to one day become a well rounded senior NCO who airman can come to with ease for guidance.

Where is the most interesting place you have traveled and why do you feel that way?
Most interesting place I've been would have to be Spain. Although the area I was at was pretty remote, having the opportunity to travel to surrounding cities and interact with the people there was a great experience.

What is your favorite book/ movie and why?
My favorite books are the "Harry Potter" series. I liked the fictional story behind it. My favorite movies are the "Rocky" series, boxing is always interesting.

If you have the opportunity to meet anyone in the world, who would it be and why?
It would be Saif Al-Adel, one of the top 10 most wanted terrorists by the FBI. I would want to meet him for his location so I could tell a relative to tip the FBI and cash in on the $5 million reward!
