Memorable Moment from the Military?
My first mission in Iraq April 1, 2009
Number One Lesson Learned While Serving?
Accountability and complacency kills
What Was Your Inspiration for Serving?
My grandfather served in WW2, my three closest friends and cousin joined the Army, and I always desired serving in the military.
My 9-5 I am an Account Manager for a Fortune 100 Company. My passion project is my Small Business, At Eaze Extracts, a St.Louis based Hemp CBD Brand. I am able to help others and give back to Veterans. I am an entrepreneur at heart.
What brought you to the blues Warriors?
I was introduced to the St.Louis Blues Warriors from Christina with Dogs For Our Brave. I had not been playing for a while and was looking for a hockey outlet. Learning that the team was made up of prior service members, I thought it would be a great way to make new friends and build a community around a common passion. I hope that in 5 years, this team is a gateway for us all to help each other thrive on and off the ice.
What benefits have the blues Warriors brought to you?
Playing with the Blues Warrior Team has brought me a sense of confidence back. Getting out there and contributing whether a simple pass in a drill or backchecking and stopping a shot in a game. Additionally, being able to work hard at something and contributing to my overall physical and mental wellbeing is a major benefit.
