I was was born in Fairbanks, Alaska and raised by Huskies. I grew up in Texas and finished High School in Las Vegas. I served a four-year enlistment in the United States Navy in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and the War on Terror. I met my amazing wife, Krystal, while serving in the Navy in San Diego, CA. We have two daughters and cannot decide if they are monster filled cupcakes or cupcake filled monsters. I have a Masters in Military History as well as an M.B.A. My hobbies include CrossFit, reading, and wearing dunce caps.
