I'm originally from central Iowa but have lived in Tucson, Arizona since 1992. That's when the United States Air Force assigned me to the 41st Electronic Combat Squadron at Davis-Monthan AFB as a dedicated crew chief on specially modified EC-130H. That type of aircraft jammed communications. Before that, I was with the 667th Special Operations Maintenance Squadron stationed at RAF Woodbridge, England where I was also a crew chief on a specially modified HC-130P/N aircraft. That aircraft refueled helicopters in flight.
In my spare time, I explore digital photography using Southern Arizona as my backdrop with a Nikon D5600 and I enjoy tent camping, hiking, and spending time with family.
