Where are you stationed?
I'm at Station 7 (McKenna Blvd.) on the B shift.
Where were you previously?
I was a firefighter at Station 7 on the C shift.
How long have you been with the MFD?
I've been with the department for 7½ years.
What do you like about your station and territory?
I like my new crew, and I liked my previous crews. I'm happy to have a job with the MFD. Every crew and person is unique in their own way.
What do you do when you're not working at MFD? Do you have hobbies, specialties, or hidden talents to share?
I enjoy spending time with my wife and three boys on my days off. As a family, we like to spend time serving at our church, shooting guns, hunting, fishing, going to parks, pulling a sled behind the 4-wheeler, and building/fixing things.
A hidden talent of mine is I can play the guitar. I can't strum to a beat, however, which makes playing hard. Having been known to make a few meals around the firehouse, cooking is also one of my hidden talents, as I have yet to find it. That said, I have made strides over the past two months with my new crew.
