Proud Father of 2 wonderful boys 6 and 3, and I have been married to my beautiful wife for nearly 11 years now. I grew up watching my father (retired Career Capt. after 37 years suffered a career ending back injury) and when it came for my turn I chose to follow in his footsteps, as did both of my brothers.

Why I Joined Fire/EMS
Grew up with a father who made it a career of 37 years and it just seemed natural.
