Q: What does your call sign mean to you?
A: My call sign is who I am as a person, I give it my all and leave it all out on the course. It is also a representation of how I act, I am a compassionate person and look to connect with people on a personal level.
Q: What branch of the military did you serve in (or are currently serving in), for how long, and what was your job?
A: I am currently active duty Army, and have been in for 22 years so far. I am currently a First Sergeant for a rather large company.
Q: Why did you commit to the Masked Athlete program?
A: I had a friend who was killed and another who was severely injured in Afghanistan. They both were heavily into fitness, both personable and would actively seek to mentor others. Were they able to do participate in this program they would, and since they can’t I do it in their honor.
Q: What piece of advice would you give someone who is interested in becoming a MAT?
A: Remember that this is not about you as an individual. Be humble, be the quiet professional, but be prepared to tackle problems and follow through all the way to the end.
Q: What would you like people to know about OEW?
A: I just want people to know we exist. We are a phenomenal program that gets very little exposure. The more that we get out there, the larger we can become, the larger we become, the more people that we can help.
Q: Motto or principle you live by.
A: “The All Father wove the skein of your life long ago, go and hide in a hole if you wish, but you won’t live one instant longer. Your fate is fixed. Fear profits a man nothing.” Short version, if you are afraid of death, then you will not truly live.
Q: How do you stay in shape for the demands of the MAT?
A: Lots of cardio and TRX workouts.
