I was born and raised as the oldest of four children in western Washington. I graduated from Kentridge High School in 2009. I was always a hard worker and while in high school I earned my AA from Green River Community College. I enjoyed playing trombone for the high school's jazz band and earned my Eagle Scout award from the Boy Scouts of America. I also worked 20 - 30 hour weeks at an auto parts warehouse while in high school. Upon graduation I served a 2 year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ is Latter-Day Saints in Denver, Colorado. In 2012 I was accepted to Brigham Young University Provo and attended with a 1/2 tuition scholarship. I studied and enjoyed environmental science and business management. 

In 2013, I decided I wanted to pursue dentistry after job shadowing multiple health professions. I applied to dental school even though I wasn't going to graduate for another 2 years. December 1st 2013 I was accepted into Midwestern Glendale AZ's DMD program and shortly thereafter accepted the 4-year HPSP US Navy Scholarship. 

I met Rachel early 2013 in Provo UT. I was going to BYU and Rachel was attending to UVU studying Theater and participated on their track team. We fell in love, got married, and moved to Glendale. As I was attending dental school, Rachel attended cosmetology school. In 2015 Rachel graduated and became a licensed cosmetologist. She worked at a kids hair cutting place and loved it. In 2016 we had a beautiful little girl who is very well behaved with loads of personaility.
