I’m currently 25 and my whole life has been in N.C. During all this time, I have explored the mountains all the way to the Outer Banks and everything In-between. Understanding the land, I knew that being prepared was the most important.

I spent 6 years in the North Carolina National Guard as a commo grunt. I was with 30th ABCT. During my time with the unit, I was able to deploy to Eastern Europe and picked up skills in communications that will always stick with me. While overseas, I learned that history and communication go hand in hand. Battles can be won or lost based on how good communications are.

I am also currently working towards my Masters in Divinity to become a Chaplin.
