I'm from Tampa, Fl and I joined the military right out of high school. I was injured in 2003 and currently living in Edmond, OK since 2012 with my son.


Along with being a disabled veteran, I am also a writer, an inventor, a Paralympian, and a official spokesman for Soldier Strong. Along with being a single father, I volunteer at the VA hospital on behalf of the Paralyzed Veterans of America, play wheelchair football for the Dallas Cowboys, and work as a personal trainer at one of Oklahomas local organizations. I enjoy are reading, writing, spending time with my son, traveling, and working out.
