I was born in South Dakota and grew up in Florida. Raised as an only child, I loved sports and played basketball in high school. I met my wife in 2009 and we enjoy traveling the world and experiencing life together. We have a Brittany named Bellatrix and a cat named Isla. I earned by BA/History from Liberty University and my MA/History from American Military University. I am currently a doctoral candidate at Liberty University for a Ph.D in History.
