What do the words “only human” mean to you?
The words “Only Human” to me means, that no matter what, to not be so quick judge someone based on their identity, differences, mistakes, flaws, choices, etc. Everyone is not the same, nor has everyone been through and experience the same things. It’s important to remember that because in the end we are “Only Human”.
What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about fishing, boating & the medical field. After a long day and every off day all I want to do is be out on the boat relaxing and casting a reel! Also, I am very passionate about my job & the medical field. My ultimate goal is after the military to be a NICU/NEONATAL Nurse!
What makes you the happiest?
My wife & family. Without them I do not know where I would be. I have slowly become a better version of myself and my wife and family have been my motivation and my biggest supporters.
Oh & my dogs!

If you could spend a day in someone else’s shoes, whose would they be? Why?
My mom. She has Multiple Sclerosis & has been wheelchair bound for awhile now. I know as much as I can hypothetically put myself in her shoes it would never be the same. I feel that being in her shoes and seeing how hard things are would better help me understand things to do and the best ways to help her. It would also teach me not to take things that are easy & normal for me (someone completely mobile) for granted.
