MOTTO

THE CUSTOMER IS ALWAYS AND COMPLETELY RIGHT!

I was born in Minnesota, raised up in Springfield, MO. I joined the Navy at 18 and was in for 10 ½ years, from Sept. 2001 to Feb. 2012. I was an Information Systems Technician and worked on anything from computers, servers, Telecommunications, Satellite communications, Message handling, driving and painting the side of the ship. That is where I began my career as an IT.  I am currently working on a variety of certification including CCNA and MCSA.

I spend my off-time hanging out with friends and cooking on the grill. I enjoy watching TV and movies (favorite movie is The Goonies). I watch NFL football every Sunday. I like going to the beach. I love going home to MO and spending time with the family. I love the wilderness and outdoors. I would spend all day on the lake fishing even if I didn’t catch any fish.
