I served 6 years in the US Marines serving in the Infantry as well as in the communications field. While in the Infantry I served in Kawait & Iraq during OIF. I served out of the JOTF HOA base in Africa for OEF. While there I served in the QRF for the Embassy protected US asset Ships traveling through the water way, patrolled Djibouti, Somalia, Yemen, Ethiopia and Kenya. After these deployments, I served in the communications field working with Radio, Multi-Channel Radio, Telephone, Data and Satellite Communications technology. I currently work for the Department of the Navy at the Naval Air Weapons Station, China Lake. I work in the Labs for the F/A-18 & EA-18G Advanced Weapons Laboratory. I got this job because of my background with computers. I have been working on computers since I was a child, at age 9 I was taught by NOVELL Certified Technicians. I started working with MS DOS when I was about 5. I have a long history of IT Administration. I have worked both in IT Administration as well as IT Security. With this position, I keep the systems secure and functional and have picked up much in the Avionics field. For my future goals, I very much would enjoy getting into Unmanned Aerospace Systems, specifically in astronautics. I would enjoy working with Space borne remote sensing technology.
