City you live in: Goodyear

A typical day in my life includes…

working with my Flying Scarfs team in the U.S. and Afghanistan, flying a supersonic training mission in the F-35A, and coming home to watch Modern Family with my wife.

I was born…

in small town along the Ohio River.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

the people. I’ve been stationed in a lot of places, but Phoenix has the most friendly and supportive community I’ve been in.

I’m listening to…

the Chainsmokers.

My family…

taught me the importance of perseverance and character.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

Richard Branson. Ideally, followed by kite surfing at his home on Nectar Island!

One thing I cannot live without…

my wife, Megan.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a fighter pilot.

I’m inspired by…

all of the veterans who return from places like Afghanistan and Iraq and are still committed to making the world a better place.

The one person who motivates me is…

Col. John Boyd. He was innovating in the Air Force before it was fashionable.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

ending oppression. Especially for women.

The perfect day would be…

waking up early for a hike in the mountains with my wife and German Shepherd, doing a fly-by at an Ohio State football game, and watching the fire-flies at my parent’s farm.

My first job was…bailing hay for my parent’s farm.

My favorite escape…

is the Sanctuary Resort. When my wife and I need a quick getaway, that’s where we go.

My life…

is lived with gusto. I’m driven by my passion. Being a fighter pilot is indescribable, but what I’m most excited about is our work helping women in underdeveloped countries.

I’m currently working on…

building a school in Afghanistan where widows and their children can learn English and computer skills.

Always…

take your wife’s fashion advice!

Never…

accept limitations.

Favorite Quote…

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act but a habit” – Aristotle

Biggest Dream…

building a company that embraces conscious capitalism and makes a positive impact on the world.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

waiting in long lines!
