I've spent the past three years as a Cadet at the United States Air Force Academy and am currently transitioning out of the military. While in the military I was given many leadership opportunities including the planning and execution of multiple day training events involving over 100 individuals. I was able to serve at Ali Al Salem Air Base, Kuwait, where I worked in the logistics field. I've developed a great interpersonal sense and enjoy working with a team. I believe that listening to others and coordinating ideas leads to successful mission completion.
During my time at the Air Force Academy I have been named the Cadet of the Year for my Squadron (100+ individuals), volunteered to travel to/work at a deployed location, and have served as the Major Training Events coordinator for my squadron. Aside from military duties I have also been active on a power-lifting team and have placed second at the Colorado Collegiate State Power-Lifting Championships. I was voted by my peers to lead an eight person team on a week long survival training exercise. During the exercise we navigated through the Rocky Mountains while carrying heavy packs but little food or water.
Prior to entering the military I was the Captain of both my high school Hockey and Cross Country teams, earning "All-Conference" honors in both sports. I was also a member of the National Honor Society.
Physical Fitness has been one of my personal strong points as evidenced by my athletic activities and achievements.
For the last three and a quarter years I've been a Cadet at the USAF Academy. While here I've been placed into many different jobs and had the opportunity to work with lots of different people. As a Major Training Events coordinator I've practiced inter-personal and organizational skills while coordinating training events for over 100 people. While serving as a Coach (mentor) for younger Cadets I've learned how to better listen to others, and how to motivate those around me.
I started mowing lawns for various individuals in my neighborhood as a teenager. I quickly became motivated to grow this summer job into a real business and branched out into the landscaping and snow-plowing fields. Eventually I would employ my younger brother and two close friends.
As a beginner youth hockey official I was given a year to "learn the ropes" while officiating children no older than 10 years old. I quickly gained the experience and qualification necessary to officiate games for competitors up to the age of 19. As a USA Hockey Certified Official I was trusted with making key decisions while under intense physical and mental stress.
I will not be completing my degree at the United States Air Force Academy as I am leaving due to personal reasons. While here, I've earned a minor in the French Language and nearly completed a Bachelor's Degree in Economics.
