Biography

While I was born in Albuquerque, NM I grew up in the Dallas metro, primarily Mesquite and Garland. After graduating from TX A&M University I went to work for State Farm Mutual Insurance Company. I left State Farm in 2000 and entered into the United States Air Force on active-duty. I spent 11 years on active-duty in various management and leadership roles as a logistician. During my active-duty service I traveled all over the United States and many areas around the globe. I had the opportunity to spend 3 years with NATO where I was exposed to a variety of cultures and leadership styles.

In 2009 while stationed at Tinker AFB, Oklahoma, I along with other like-minded leaders started a charitable organization called the Long Race Foundation. The foundation was designed to help families and individuals in need with few conditional criteria to worry about.

After 2 years of service in Oklahoma I left active-duty and joined the Montana Air National Guard in 2011. In 2012 I deployed to Afghanistan for my third overseas contingency deployment. Upon returning I took a position at Malmstrom AFB, MT as a Logistics Compliance Manager.

In May of 2014 I was brought back on active-duty to assist the 120th Airlift Wing convert from a mission involving the F-15 Strike Eagle to the C-130 Hercules. This is a significant cultural shift from a fighter aircraft culture to an airlift culture. While this is a temporary assignment it is exciting to be involved in helping reshape the organization to meet future mission requirements and support our state and nation.
