After Northwestern (class of 2002), I went to the Air Force Academy. I was the Cadet Wing Commander and was on the skydiving team. I was a distinguished graduate and received a BS in Astronautical Engineering. Upon graduation, I was commissioned as an officer in the United States Air Force. I am a pilot with approximately 2,200 flying hours in the Pilatus PC-12 and CV-22 Osprey aircraft. I’ve deployed 7 times to 16 countries. I have a MBA from Oklahoma State University. I am currently a student at the Air Command and Staff College in Montgomery, AL. My wife Carly and I have been married 11 years, are active in our church, have 4 kids, and are foster parents.
