Born in Honolulu Hawaii I moved to Havelock, NC in the 1980s. I grew up enjoying the woods and beaches of eastern NC hunting and fishing.  

I worked as a federal contractor with both fixed wing aircraft (AV-8B Harrier) as a technical writer for Cherry Point and tilt rotor aircraft (AH-1W Cobra and UH-1N Huey Helicopters) as a data analyst at Corpus Christi, Texas Naval Base, Marine Corp Base Camp Pendleton and Marine Corp Base Futenma, Okinawa helping build and maintain their Integrated Maintenance Concept database.  I was a plant manager for 3 yrs for Neetfleet Marine and US Surface Protection onboard Hatteras Yachts. Then I finished off my federal employment in 2021 managing my fathers demolition business onboard Cherry Point Marine Corp Air Station. I came to work for the NCCF in mid September, 2022, as the data manager.  

I enjoy growing my food gardens and raising chickens on my land. My end goal is to have a farm and become self-sufficient growing and raising my own food, collecting rain water and using solar power to live. I have a beautiful 19 yr old daughter who is and always will be the greatest thing in my life. I usually spend my off time disc golfing, fishing, camping, boating, and spending time with my family.
