Years With Team: 



Married in 1988 to my lovely wife Angi, we have three children Elizabeth, Amanda and Dillon. All three children are adults. Elizabeth is attending NCSU and has about a year and a half to complete a degree in biology.  Amanda is living at home to save money until next fall when she will head to UNCW to finish her degree in Marine Biology. Dillon currently lives in Oklahoma where he works for a manufacturing company.

Where he’s from:

I was born in Ogden, Utah and lived all over the western Unites States until joining the Marine Corps in 1984. I traveled all over the world as a Marine including a tour in Iraq. Except for a brief tour in Dallas, TX and Ogden, UT we spent most of our time stationed here in NC.


I took advantage of off duty education taking online classes from Park University and Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. I graduated from Park University in 2003 with a B.S. in Management. I graduated from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University in 2010 with a M.S. in Aviation Management. 


I retired from the Marine Corps in March of 2007 after 22 years and now work as the Airport Manager for Marine Corps Air Station New River in Jacksonville, NC.

What has influenced his life:

The three greatest influences in my life are my wife, my parent’s and the Marine Corps.

Fun Fact:

I love to dive and the Denver Bronco’s

In his own words: 

I relay because cancer has impacted my life. Both my mother and mother in-law died of cancer.
