Born in Washington State and raised in Montana, I am an active duty TSgt stationed at Travis AFB, CA, where I work in the base innovation lab. It's my job to operate the base Makerspace and teach people how to use advanced manufacturing equipment like 3D printers. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family following Baseball.
