I have spoken at the U.S. Air Force Academy, TEDx, the Military Influencer Conference and dozens of corporate clients like Quicken Loans and United Health Group on veterans issues and technology topics.
I am also a writer for In Cyber Defense Magazine, GEN Magazine, War is Boring, & Soldier of Fortune Magazine, and have been featured in Bustle and Fatherly. I am currently a Medium top writer in Culture and History.
I am a veteran of both the US Army and the US Air Force for a total of 10 years of service and have an MBA with a concentration in IT management and a bachelor's degree in International Relations. I am also currently in law school at Western Michigan University Cooley School of Law.
I am the director of the short film "Memorial Day" which earned Best Drama at the Oregon Cinema Arts Festival and Special Mention at the One Reeler Short Film Competition in LA.
Originally from Dallas, Texas, I left the prairie and now live near the beach in Coast Guard City, USA - Grand Haven, Michigan, with my awesome wife, three awesome kids and my awesome pet wolf. (Okay... it's a husky).
