More about me…
I am a lifelong fan of professional wrestling. I was hooked as a child by Ricky Steamboat vs Ric Flair and Hulkamania. I have enjoyed many brands and companies over the years, to include WWF / WWE, WCW, ECW, TNA/Impact, ROH, PWG, NJPW, and AEW. While I have attended countless shows, with the highlights being my eight trips to Wrestlemania.
I graduated from Rancho Alamitos High School in 2002, with MMA fighter Nam Phan as a notable classmate. I held 5 editor titles across three school publications, including founder / Editor-in-Chief of sports newsletter “The Sideline”. I also wrestled during my sophomore year and finished 2nd in junior varsity league. I wore shirts with fire and/or dragons on them and tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time.
I have travelled to over 30 states and 12 countries, and hope to continue expanding that list! Some favorite places include Scotland, Puerto Rico, Bulgaria, Hawaii, and San Antonio. Stonehenge (one of the biggest henges in the world) was my singular favorite location.
I joined the United States Army Reserve in 2001, less than two months after the 9/11 attacks. Less than a year after graduating high school, I deployed overseas to Kosovo and worked in the Operations Center of Camp Bondsteel Hospital as part of Task Force Medical Falcon. In 2004, I served in Kuwait in the Tactical Operations Center of Ash Shuaiba naval port with the 483rd Transportation Battalion. My time in the Army Reserve concluded with the 380th Adjutant Battalion headquarter detachment, where I served as Detachment Sergeant. After exploring various career options, I decided to join the Active Guard and Reserve (AGR) program to serve full time as a recruiter.
Since 2009, I have been a change agent at US Army Recruiting Command. From metropolitan area training to large regional and national initiatives, I have been at the forefront of virtual marketing modernization. Check out my Linkedin for more information!
I am currently working on publishing a poetry collection called “Flawless Sinner”, as well as a book on modernizing military recruiting.
