Hi.  Welcome to my web site.  Enjoy.

My Background

I am originally from Valley Stream, NY.  It's a village of approximately 35,000 people in southwestern Nassau County, on Long Island.  I graduated from Valley Stream Central High School in 1993.  From there I went on to the US Air Force Academy, graduating with a BS in Engineering Science and Spanish Minor in 1997.  I also have a MS in Administration from Central Michigan University.  I am a Security Forces major in the USAF and have been stationed in North Dakota, Alaska, Illinois, and New Mexico.

My Interests

I was a volunteer fireman in Nassau Hook & Ladder Co. No. 1 of the Valley Stream Fire Department from 1993 to 2000.  I have since become an honorary member of the company.  I was a firefighter/lieutenant/EMT in the Meadow Lakes Fire Department (now part of the West Lakes FD) in Alaska from 2000-2004, a firefighter/EMT (later Assistant Chief for about 6 months) in the Anderson, AK Fire Department (2003-2005), and a firefighter with the East Side Fire Department in Illinois (2005-2010).  I am currently a firefighter/EMT with the Edgewood Fire District in New Mexico..

I have been a competitive shooter for over 20 years.  I shot in high school and college, where I was an All-American.  I was on the National Development Team from 1997-1998.  I currently shoot for the Air Force International Rifle Team.  I shoot a modified Anschutz Model 1413 free rifle in smallbore competition.  In air rifle, I use an FWB 601 (yes, I'm the only person left on the line not shooting a compressed air gun).
