I am a disabled US Army Infantry veteran of Operation Joint Forge, former pilot, and devout Catholic man. I just got hired to begin a new career as a Direct Support Services Provider. Another thing about me is that I’m a Certified Mixologist. I am currently writing a book, and I am a musician (I play trombone, and I’m learning piano and guitar). I am active in the Veterans of Foreign Wars, where I serve as Junior Vice Commander of a local Post. My interests are advocacy related to mental health issues, veterans issues, and for people with ALL disabilities, as well as sports, aviation/aeronautics/aerospace, meteorology, astrophysics, history, music, and great food. In my free time, I enjoy watching sports/going to sporting events, listening to music, music performance, going to concerts, watching TV, and writing. I also enjoy playing with my dog, spending time with family and friends, and going on road trips. I am overcoming Bipolar Disorder, Anxiety, a Traumatic Brain Injury, Diabetes, Hypothyroidism, and other endocrine issues. I am a survivor of Graves Disease. That’s basically everything about me. I hope you enjoy what you read!
