During his time in school he was active in the Boy Scouts of America and earned his rank of Eagle Scout in 2006.

He worked at Green Mill for as long as anyone can remember. He also worked at Horizon Middle School as a paraprofessional for the last few years. Although he was a hard and dedicated worker, he had a passion for traveling the world and experiencing new adventures where ever he went. He traveled to nine different countries and several different states where he was able to rock climb, bungee jump and sky dive and many other adventures.
He loved his family, the family dog Molly, friends, movies and music. He was an avid movie and concert junkie and would go and see any and all movies and concerts. He was a BISON and Eagle’s Football fan.
