Who is the most positive influence in your life and why?
I have been very fortunate to have had great leadership and mentorship from my current and past leadership and peers who have helped mold and guide me. However, the one person who has always been there is my uncle retired U.S. Marine Corps Sgt. Maj. Everett Ybarra. He came into my life when I needed positive influence and has remained that constant voice in my head when I begin to falter or doubt myself.

What would you like to accomplish during your Air Force career?
My desire is to have positive influence on younger Airman and to continue to train them to replace me.

Where is the most interesting place you have traveled and why do you feel that way?
The most interesting place would have to be Istanbul, Turkey. I was amazed by the blending of old and new. It's one thing to learn about history from textbooks, but to actually see it is another.

What is your favorite book/ movie and why?
My favorite book would have to be "Lincoln on Leadership." The book provides values that you can apply in your personal life as well as professional. The book focuses on people, character, endeavor and communication. It is about making an effort, communication and most importantly honesty and integrity.

If you have the opportunity to meet anyone in the world, who would it be and why?
I would like to meet Iron Chef Michael Symon for two reasons; to get tips on how to cook better and he seems to like to cook with bacon.
