Hi! My name is
Baghdad, Iraq 2004
Various flying duties and jobs involving aircraft.
I joined the Air Force when I was 18 years old and became an avionics technician on F-15 Eagles for ten years and then a Crew Chief on C-141 Starlifters for five years. I would have retired at 20 years of service if it hadn't been for the discovery of a new career field: Combat Camera. For almost 19 years I turned my love of travel and photography into something I got paid to do by joining the 4th Combat Camera Squadron at March Air Reserve Base near Riverside, California.
Combat Camera sent me all over the world documenting events and activities of the Department of Defense. My favorite jobs usually involved aircraft or flying.

Of course there were other missions to support real world events and deployments to exotic locations.
