I am a Commander in the United States Coast Guard. I'm currently stationed at the United States Naval War College studying National Security and Strategic Studies.

I have been previously stationed in Atlantic City, NJ, Elizabeth City, NC, Detroit, MI, and Corpus Christi, TX. In New Jersey, I was the Executive Officer. I managed the operations, support and logistics for a fleet of eleven helicopters. In North Carolina, I worked at the Aviation Logistics Center as the Information Systems Division Chief where I led software development, help desk ticketing, and data center management. In Michigan and Texas, I was a search and rescue helicopter pilot and assistant aeronautical engineer.

I married Laura Holtmeier in 2002 and currently have two children, Adrienne (2006) and Catherine (2008).
