Ryan Claire(prefer to be addressed as Rocky) born 8 Dec 1990 in Youngstown, OH. Currently attending Purdue Global online pursuing a Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice. Current goal is to execute a career change to the field of tech sales. At the moment, I am finishing out out an Active Duty Military contract with the United States Army in Fort Hood, TX, where I have been assigned as a Federal Investigator, and have participated in over 250 criminal investigations. I believe I have developed a plethora of communicative skills through my investigative career that will easily and effectively translate to the tech sales industry. Some of these skills include my effective communication, ability to work independently, think on my own while also keeping the mission first and work ethic.

I have been able to maximize these skills not only as an investigator but also as a soldier. I believe maintaining and utilizing these skills will help me in my career in tech sales as well.
