I graduated from Auburn University (in 2004) with a degree in Graphic Design. With my degree in hand I walked into the military recruiters office and enlisted. I haven’t regretted it since. For the past 6yrs I have been serving in the US AirForce. I love my job. It can be highly stressful at times and comes with long days and night. But, I still love it. **My math might appear off in regards to my military career. In a nutshell, Joined Army 2004, injured in basic then Med discharged. Came home to heal, 1.5yrs later signed back up.**
I am very reserved when I first meet people. Once I get to know someone, or I am comfortable, the guard usually comes down. My true personality is sarcastic and fun loving. Humor can helps me deal with stressful moments as well as make the everyday moments so much better.
During my free time I enjoy being outdoors. I have started looking into bike riding. So many things have changed since I last had a bike (it was cool to put baseball cards in the spokes, I only had one gear, and there weren’t laws requiring helmets). I also enjoy hiking, swimming, camping and photography (much rather be behind the camera than in front).
My family plays an enormous part in my life. I am extremely blessed to have them. One day I hope to have an amazing family of my own. Until then my awesome niece is the greatest little one in my life. She is a true gift from God.
I will be deploying for a year to Afghanistan (Mid-June). I have been asked “What do you think about it?” or “How do you feel about deploying?” Only way I can answer is, It’s part of the job that I signed up for. Sure I’m scared, like everyone else, but I can’t let that hold me back. The worst part of the deployment is that my second niece is due one month after I leave. Thank God . And I’ll be able to meet her in Feb. So, if you have any questions, I peak your interest or you would like to just send a friendly good luck please don’t hesitate.
