Fighter Pilot /Combat veteran with the USAF / Hawaii ANG; retired military, now running F-22 programs at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, HI. I am a lifelong athlete earning collegiate All-American honors in rugby while at the US Air Force Academy and remain an avid ocean athlete still holding a world record in outrigger canoe paddling. CF-L1 certified and competed in the 2013 and 2014 Reebok CrossFit Games as a Master's athlete with the World's fittest. Praise the Lord for allowing me the health and ability to train and compete - there are many fallen hero warriors who cannot and I hope to honor their memory in my endeavors.
