Bio

My father was in the U.S. Navy and I grew up in the far Northern town of Thurso, Scotland until the end of 6th grade, I then moved to Salt Lake City for 7th grade then to Port Angeles WA where graduated from high school. After graduation from high school I attended Blue Mountain College in Pendleton OR studying animal science and was the only freshman on the college livestock judging team.

I quit college to join the Navy and ultimately spent almost 22 years in the U.S. Navy retiring as a Senior Chief Petty Officer.

While in the Navy I taught the motorcycle safety course and the explosive driver course at NAS Miramar CA and I was the Senior Instructor at the Medium Attack Weapons School and the Electronic Weapons Combat School at NAS Whidbey Island WA.

After retiring, I worked at Cashman Equipment as the mining component rebuild manager in the Reno rebuild facility before entering the University of Nevada full time.

From 2009 through 2012 I was a guest speaking for a 400/600 level reading literacy class of pre-service teachers at the University of Nevada.
