Ridgewood resident and gradute of the Ridgewood High School class of 2004. Enlisted in the Marine Corps in 2004 and left for boot camp 12 days ofter high school graduation. I guarded nuclear weapons for 2 years before deploying to Iraq in 2007 as the lead turret gunner and personal body guard for our mission commander. I completed over 180 missions in the Al An Bar Province or Iraq during my 7 month combat deployment.
After returing home to Ridgewood I started HonorVet.org with close Marine Corps friend Jim McCain. Through strong partnerships and experts in various industries we have launched the next generation community for veterans. HonorVet.org provides online mental health care counseling sessions, a social network, and professional guidance leading veterans into meaningful career opportunities.
