About

I am a former infantryman in the United States Marine Corps. During my time in the military, I was assigned to the Delta Company Outlaws, Second Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion, Second Marine Division. My travels have taken me from the Mediterranean and Kosovo to Djibouti, the United Arab Emirates, and Fallujah. 

Following an honorable discharge from the Marines, I went on to complete my bachelor’s degree in business management from Rowan University, my master’s from Georgian Court University, and finally, another bachelor’s in web design and development from Full Sail University. I began my civilian career as a contract specialist for the United States Army and have worked my way through various positions to finally end up as a business systems analyst with the Department of Veterans Affairs. 

I am happily married to my wife, Melissa, and we are the proud parents of two little boys, Joshua and Gavin.
My book, Memoirs of an Outlaw, is finally available on Amazon in either Kindle or Paperback format!  See link below for more details!

If you care to take a look, I've designed a website for the book as well as set up a Facebook page for it.

Hey mate. You have inspired me to continue writing on Wattpad, bringing to my attention its therapeutic benefits. Looking closer at it, I find I use it quite a lot as stress-relief and a way to vent my feelings. It's really cool how you're sharing your experiences and I hope I can become as successful as you on Wattpad one day.

Many thanks from across the Pacific Ocean, CinderellaLover (your teenaged Australian fan)
Thank you for serving this country. My entire family is made up of marines and I love your books. Happy Fourth of July man! :D
