I went to school for electronics, radars and missile systems while in the service. During that time, I also attended night school where I received an associate degree in social science and American Sign Language. After the Navy, I went to college again and received a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology with a Physical Therapy emphasis and a coaching minor. A couple years later I completed my Electrical Engineering degree and my master’s in business administration. I currently coach wrestling at a local high school.
Greetings. Let me quickly catch you up to speed. Two weeks after high school graduation the Navy shipped me off to boot camp. I scored in the top 4% on my Navy placement exam which allowed me to choose from any job in the fleet. I choose to be a Fire Controlman. If you don’t know what a Fire Controlman is, let me just tell you that it is the coolest job in the Navy. I got too worked with the missiles. I went through 1.5 years of basic electronics A-School and then I went through 6 months of C-School where I learned all about my missile…The Sea Sparrow. I spent the last four years of my contract completing two tours to Iraq and successfully defending my ship, the USS Deyo, against all forging attacks. Following my Honorable Discharge in 2006, I choose to leave the electronics behind me and pursue a career in medicine. After 2 years of college I had obtained my bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology and found myself applying for a Physical Therapy Master’s Program. My impressive community service and extra-curricular activities were not enough to overshadow my 3.3 GPA. After failing to become a physical therapist I headed off into the real world for the first time. Over the course of two years I was a caterer, a bartender, a personal trainer, a rehab therapist, a landscaper, a wrestling coach, a writer, a movie maker, an app designer, and even a business owner. When I lost my business in 2010 I made the decision to go back to school and pursue an Electrical Engineering degree. I spent the next three years of my life studying. The reason it took me three years to get my Electrical Engineering bachelor’s and not two was because firstly, engineering school is hard, and secondly my aunt got liver cancer when I was half way through my degree. She was going to die if she didn’t get a donor. After getting tested I found I was a perfect match. So on February 22, 2012, the doctors cut me open, took 60% of my liver, and gave it to my aunt. The surgery saved her life. Following graduation, the company I had been CO-OP’ing with for the last two years offered me a job. I learned something new every day and I loved it. Since then, I have started my own company, Mission Dice. We at Mission Dice make educational dice games that teach math and math concepts to young school aged children.
