Candidacy Statement

Service to our Nation and giving back to USAFA are lifelong commitments which inspire me to pursue this opportunity to serve on the AOG Board of Directors.  The Academy experience enriched my life by enabling me to bring laser focus and tireless grit to tacking life’s challenges at work and within my local community.

If elected to the board, I desire to improve the vibrancy of our local AOG chapters.  As we operate in this “post-COVID” environment, it is critical for our chapters to provide opportunities for grads to connect with each other on personal levels.  During my two decades of involvement with the Baltimore Chapter AOG (BCAOG), I have witnessed the benefits of connecting with grads across the generations.  Members of the BCAOG enjoy serving as the welcoming party to visiting cadets participating in their summer research internships at Ft Meade, as well as those in the exchange program at the Naval Academy.

 Living and working within Central Maryland provides a strategic location for a BOD representation.  My Air Force career began at Ft Meade, MD in 1993 in the “cyber domain” well before it became a common term.  During the past three decades, I have actively served in multiple cyber roles that have impacted our Nation’s security posture and operational capabilities.  Along the way, I enjoyed collaborating with a fellow service academy graduate working within the Cyber domain. 

I am passionate about the Academy’s heritage and enduring commitment to integrity, excellence, and service to country.  I would be an honor to represent the AOG’s interests within the local graduate communities while strengthening the “Long Blue Line” across all corners of the USA! 

Go Falcons!  Proud to Be ’93!
