What made you want to serve our country?
After a near death experience while filming music videos I thought the military would be more fitting for my talents/skills.
What advice would you give someone looking to go into the military?
Just know that it’s all about showing that you can follow orders. It’s not about what you want or do anymore.
Did you make any close friendships while in the service? Did you continue any of those relationships?
Everyone in any branch of the military will become family with their boot camp brothers and sisters.
What was the best and worst ‘military’ food you were served, and why?
Every meal from boot camp was the worst because it was intended to make everyone constipated on purpose.
How does your military experience affect your life today?
I’ve grown more discipline.
Were you awarded any medals or citations? How did you get them?
I received my quals for fire fighting and am working on my surface warfare pin.
Where did you travel while in the service?
Chicago, Mississippi, and Norfolk, VA.
Why did you pick the service branch you joined?
Because I felt the Navy was the best choice for someone with a college degree.
Do you recall your first days in service?
Cold and LOUD!
Was there something special you did for “good luck”?
My brother was in the army and I wore his Quicksilver jacket when I arrived at boot camp.
Did you work or go back to school?
I got a Bachelor’s of Science in Digital Media and then I joined the Navy almost five years later.
