I'm single, which means I'm alone. That's not a bad thing, gentleman. Independence is attractive. I work to better myself each day. Be the awesome guy that you hope to find in someone else. Respect everybody, as almost everyone is deserving of respect. Smile. Every day is a great day, folks just need to find the right perspective.
I come from a family of firefighters and people with big hearts.
I was born on a cattle ranch in Roswell, New Mexico.
Our family homesteaded that ranch and we still run cattle on the land.
From there I’ve lived in Alaska, California, Nevada and went to high school in Idaho.
During high school I broke my neck competing in a wrestling tournament.
After making a full recovery, I became a sports medic, EMT, and ultimate geek as a high school debate and competitive speech champ. I also dabbled in track & field.
From Idaho I left to George Washington University in DC, where I studied international affairs and US history and held internships in various political offices.
Aside from studying in college, I became a front doorman (a "refined" bouncer at the front door of clubs). I worked the front door at some of DC’s most popular night clubs and venues and learned the security and hospitality trade craft.
During the hot summers I returned out west and worked as a wildland firefighter. I also picked up studying kung fu and Brazilian jiu jitsu.
Going to college at GW availed me of numerous other opportunities, adventures and endeavors.
I went to law school in Boston upon graduating college. I continued to work as a front doorman at some high end venues and accomplished a few clerkships during my summers. I worked with landlord/tenant laws, civil service employment and federal courts. During school I also joined a gay softball team and became our pitcher and captain.
I graduated law school in 2009. About a year later I moved to a small county in New York, where I assumed a position as an Assistant District Attorney. I was one of 7 ADAs and prosecuted every misdemeanor and felony that occurred in my assigned towns and villages. I also became a volunteer local structure firefighter and became certified to go into the interior of burning buildings, fought fires and responded to motor vehicle accidents. I also studied fire arson investigation. Maybe one day my legal career will merge with my passion for firefighting.
In 2012 I returned to Boston to practice criminal defense, and I also managed security at a bar on the weekends. I was also a softball pitcher.
My professional outlook continues to change with my experiences.
I recently returned home to Roswell to be closer to family, to serve my community, to find love and settle down.
