I graduated Summa Cum Laude from SUNY Purchase Colege in May 2012 with Bachelor of Arts degrees in both History and Political Science and a minor in Asian Studies. While studying at Purchase, I spent one semester in Osaka, Japan at Kansai Gaidai University - 関西外大. I am a member of the National Society of Leadership and Success (Sigma Alpha Pi) and was selected as the Senior Class Speaker for Commencement through a highly competitive application and audition process. I look forward to continuing my studies and intend on pursuing graduate degrees in the future.
I previously served as the Administrative Coordinator for the University of Washington's Simpson Center for the Humanities, an organization focused on encouraging innovative cross-disciplinary research in the humanities. It is a great pleasure to work with a diverse range of distinguished scholars and graduate students.
I am currently on active duty as the AGR BIDS Maintainer for the 4th Platoon of the 130th Chemical Company (BIDS). I maintain nearly $9 million in equipment in addition to my duties as a team leader. I deployed to Iraq from 2006-2007 in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom as an Operations NCO for the 329th Chemical Company (RECON), where I helped lead six ground-breaking joint-service hazardous materials operations.
I aspire to become involved in the global community. After one year in Iraq and five months in Japan, I believe that my ideal role would be one in which I can engage in peaceful dialogue and intellectual exchange. When I leave the military, I am interested in pursuing a second career in business, technology, education, technical training, government, or any number of other possibilities. I greatly enjoy learning about other people as well as about different cultures through my personal interactions with others.
I am fluent in Spanish (Latin American) and am studying Japanese in my free time after taking several courses at the Japan Society in New York City. I intend to pursue a Masters Degree in the near future.
