I am a retired Army veteran and Navy veteran of which I served a total of 10 years. I have an Associate of Applied Science Degree for Intelligence Operations from Cochise College. I am pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Engineering Degree for Electrical Engineering (Electrical Power and Energy Systems) at Arizona State University. I wish to do developmental work and research in power and energy solutions with nano-material science applications. I have traveled all over the world from my military time and made the best use of this time by learning about multiple cultures and human environments. My time in the military helped develop my views on the human condition and our existence on this planet. With these views, I have discovered the purpose of learning and the need for proper education. I don't see learning as a systemic process of digesting and regurgitating information in a highly structured and methodical manner. Learning is not a performance art. Learning is an individual race towards developing multiple perspectives of a comprehensive concept. If you focus your learning on the following two principles, there is nothing you can not learn: 1) Do you know how to learn? And 2) Are you able to progress with your learning? If you can answer both questions effectively, there is nothing you cannot learn. Once this is accomplished, you must learn multiple perspectives to master a concept. I teach and mentor in this way. I have taught my own developed classes and training while in the military, and I homeschool my children. I enjoy learning about new developments and discoveries in the sciences and I enjoy watching and reading a whole host of subjects. When I am not teaching, learning or studying, I thoroughly enjoy spending time with my children.

Undergraduate Degree: Arizona State University - Bachelor of Engineering, Electrical Engineering
I am a bit of a geek and a huge fan of geek culture. Learning about new portions of geek culture like new comic books or fandoms is always a joy for my wife and myself. I don't have a favorite per se, but we regularly enjoy Star Wars, LOTR, most comic book universes. I am actually helping a Navy friend of mine write and develop a new comic book series. I enjoy watching documentaries and movies. I spend a lot of time on streaming sites and I try to actively keep my time on social media to a minimum. I enjoy playing with dolls with my 8 year old daughter. My 11 year old son and I enjoy video games and YouTube videos. For the gamers out there, our console platform of choice is PlayStation.
