I am a U.S. Army Veteran and served from 1988 to 1995, being enlisted, an ROTC cadet, and as an Officer. I was injured in a training accident and sustained a spinal cord injury.
Post injury, I have been a mortgage broker, general contractor, and now serve as the Executive Director for the Paralyzed Veterans of America, Northwest Chapter. I also enjoy taking Disabled Veterans hunting and fishing.
My mobility has been a manual wheelchair for the past 29 years. I utilize an iBot powerchair that the Soldier Strong Foundation acquired for me now. This amazing piece of equipment makes my life more fulfilling and gives me a higher level of independence!
I am a father to 22-year-old boy/girl twins and reside in Spokane, Washington.
