How does it feel to be a new squadron CC?
I am humbled by this opportunity to lead such an outstanding squadron rich with history and excellence.

What are your goals/agenda during your time as commander?
We will continue to help the group grow the Joint Strike Fighter reprogramming capability as well as transition to Air Force CYBER Command without losing focus on providing unparalleled EW support to the warfighter. The 36th EWS will also mentor and shape tomorrow's EW professionals.

What is one particular life lesson you've gained from your time in the military?
Relationships are invaluable.

What type of hobbies/activities do you have outside of work?
I love to ski (snow and water). I'm also a gym rat ... usually there every morning in order to compensate for my terrible eating habits.
