Personal Background

How I got here:

I began my military career as a Medic, then an Electrician, and finally settled in as a Submarine Sonar Technician where I was the guy listening to the whales and dolphins. I spent the next few years operating and maintaining this electrical, electronic, & mechanical system culminating in my becoming the team leader. I took my expertise and operational skills and put them to work as the Lead Instructor of a 24-week advanced employment school. I enjoyed teaching so much that I used my off time to earn a BS degree in Workforce Education & Development. 

That degree propelled me from working under the ocean to flying above it in the Navy's premier Command and Control Aircraft. Flying off of aircraft carriers was awesome! In the air I operated the radar and communication systems and was responsible for mission success; while on the ground I was the Legal Officer, Maintenance Officer, Aviation Safety Officer, and Asst. Operations Officer. Next I began working with contractors from L-3, SAIC, BAE, Lockheed Martin, and others in testing new Command, Control, Communication, and Computer (C4) systems and procedures. After a couple of years of leading edge technology work I was sent to Baghdad Iraq for a year to assist with the reconstruction of that country's banking infrastructure and monitor their budget expenditures. After Iraq I became the Training Officer for a 450-person department. My final two years was spent getting simulator and aircraft system needs into the DoD budget while monitoring implementation. I also used that time to earn an MBA with an HR concentration.

 USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71) Details

USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71)
Hull number CVN-71

USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) is a key element of our country's forward-deployed defense strategy. Tasked with maintaining open sea lanes of trade and communications, TR is capable of projecting air superiority to all points of the globe.

The embarked Carrier Air Wing aircraft serve as outstanding instruments of peace. Anytime and anywhere TR reports for duty, she brings 4.5 acres of sovereign U.S. territory and 97,000 tons of diplomacy.

TR's equipment and crew are always maintained at the highest state of readiness. This enables the ship to carry out a wide variety of missions, including: air warfare, strike warfare, surface warfare, undersea warfare and electronic warfare. TR also shares the task of replenishing ships at sea and performing a variety of non-combat missions, such as rescues at sea of people in distress and the transport of refugees and others in need of help.

People make TR more than a mere mass of steel, cables and pipes. She is a floating city of 5,500 professional Sailors from every state in the Union. It is the veteran Sailor with gold on his dress blues and the young 17-year old, away from home for the first time, who provide TR with heart and soul.
