Where are you from?
I’m from Merrimack, New Hampshire.

Why did you decide to join the Air Force?
I joined because I had tried college and it really wasn’t for me. I spoke to my brother, who was in the Army, and he told me that the Air Force might be a good fit for me.

How long have you been at Shaw?
I’ve been here for two years.

What is one Air Force resource you found that is incredibly beneficial?
Well, I’m a fairly new parent, so I would have to say the Airman Family Readiness Center. They have a lot of resources and classes that taught me a lot as I prepared to become a father. It was a huge help for me when I had so many questions.

What is your favorite part of South Carolina?
I love the fact that winters aren’t cold here. I like the warmth.

What is your favorite part of your hometown?
I love how small my home town is. It has a very communal feeling to it.

How would you describe a normal day for you?
My work day always starts with a pre-duty brief. From there it transitions to live air traffic control work or simulated training.

What is one word that describes how you lead?
I really try to do my best at my job and try to push other people to do the same. In that way, I would say I lead diligently.

What is your favorite sport? Team?
My favorite sport is ice hockey and I’m a lifetime Boston Bruins and New England Patriots fan.

What is your least favorite part of your job? How do you make sure it gets done?
I would say that the process of maintaining records is my least favorite part of the job. However, maintaining my records is essential to being an air traffic controller, so I use that as a motivator to hold myself accountable.

What is your favorite part of the job?
My favorite days are busy days, where I get to work a lot of air traffic. I love the feeling of leaving work after a busy day and knowing I did a good job.

What would you like to say to the people back home?
I hope everyone back home knows that I love them.
