Who is the most positive influence in your life and why?
My family is the most positive influence in my life, but mainly it's my wife Courtney. She is absolutely amazing and is my best friend. She has supported my family and me throughout my life; multiple deployments and careers.

What would you like to accomplish during your Air Force career?
During my time in the Air Force, I have always ensured that the welfare of those under my supervision is my highest priority. Taking the time to mentor and truly know your Airmen enables them to accomplish the mission to the best of their ability, and to take pride in what they do.

Where is the most interesting place you have traveled and why do you feel that way?
Well it wasn't while I was in the Air Force, but in my opinion, the most interesting place I have travelled to is Alaska. It's America's last frontier and it has a rich history. It's also a sportsman' s paradise.

What is your favorite movie and why?
My favorite movie is "Lonesome Dove." It epitomizes loyalty and the great lengths one friend will go to for another.

If you have the opportunity to meet anyone in the world, who would it be and why?
It would have to be U.S. Marine Corps Lt. Gen. Lewis Burwell "Chesty" Puller. If you don't know who that is, you will just have to look him up as I wouldn't have enough words here to do him justice.
