Why did you decide to serve?

My recruiter said the Marines would give me free haircuts and clothes, the food would be great, and I’d get to travel to exotic places.

VSO Role:

VP of Federal

Date Joined:

June 2019

Why did you join VSO and how has the experience been for you?

A guy named Steve O'Keefe convinced me that it’d be a great place to work....he wasn’t wrong. The experience has been incredible, the people are outstanding, and I love our company culture.

Military Life:

I was an artilleryman and JTAC, so I spent the majority of my career supporting the infantry and allied military forces with awesome firepower. During my time, I was fortunate enough to live (or bivouac) in North Carolina, Oklahoma, California, and Hawaii as well as travel to over 15 countries.
I’m honored to continue working with my brothers in arms. God Bless you all and thanks for your service to our country.

Family Life:

I live in Northern VA with my wife and five children: three girls and two boys! I love the DC professional sports teams. My family and I enjoy the outdoors, going to sporting events, and spending time with grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins.
