Candidacy Statement

Service to our Country and to the great institution of USAFA is a lifelong commitment for which I feel inspired to volunteer my time to serve on the Association of Graduates Board of Directors.  My USAFA experiences (both the good and the challenging times) have enriched my life by solidifying my character and tenacity while establishing lifelong friendships with fellow grads that transcend time. 

If extended the privilege to serve as a member of this board, I want to contribute to the AOG’s mission areas by applying experiences gained from supporting the ongoing operations of the Baltimore Chapter AOG (Distinguished Chapter Recognition from 2014 to present).  Also, I recognize the value of networking amongst service academy grads through my volunteer involvement with SACC DC events.  I am amazed by the diversity of talent and industries represented.  As a service academy graduate, we represent a valuable national resource that has the responsibility of making a positive impact within the communities we live. 

My comfort with computer technology began, as an 11-year-old boy, programming a TRS-80 and continued through my college days and later expanded into the cyber domain over the course of many exciting assignments and job roles.  I hope these experiences allow me to contribute to USAFA’s cyber capabilities by facilitating conversations amongst faculty and cadets with fellow graduates making an impact in cyber. 

I am passionate about USAFA’s mission and I am proud to extend the “Long Blue Line” in Maryland raising awareness amongst local high school candidates that there are other Service Academy options besides the Naval Academy!  Go Falcons!  Proud to Be ’93!
