I graduated from Embry-Riddle University with a degree in Aerospace Engineering before being commissioned as an officer in the United States Air Force. I have spent about 13 years in the military, first as a B-1B Lancer pilot and then as an MQ-9 Reaper instructor pilot.
During my military career, I earned a Master of Military History degree from Norwich University and a Master of Divinity degree from Liberty University. I also graduated from both Squadron Officer School and Air Command and Staff College.
Me and my wife Ranae have been married for over ten years and are the parents of three children. We now live outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where I serve as an elder and teacher at Hilltown Baptist Church. Additionally, I am the author of two books and several articles, as well as host for the podcast Governed by God.
