Retired from the Army where my last position was the equivalent of a First Sergeant. During my career, I served at four stateside posts (Forts Bragg, Belvoir, Stewart and West Point), Berlin, and in Panama as a Corps of Engineers soldier focused on utility infrastructure, disaster relief and nation building.
Owner of ECHO Power Engineering, we provide professional electrical engineering and services, assessments, start-ups, commissioning, etc. with 17 total employees.
Personally, I am devoted to Cathi and my small family, my partner, employees and the ECHO family, and God. My passions are kids, veterans and their families, golf and A Soldiers Child. Obviously, ASC targets 2 of my passions as a Christian led organization, and it fills a hole previously unrecognized and much needed. I also believe I can get as much from ASC as I give in terms of fulfillment.
