BA in Economics, 1973, with additional courses towards an MBA program. I entered the USAF in 1973 and pursued a career in aviation, first as a navigator and then as an electronic warfare officer on a variety of aircrafts. I have served both on active duty and in the Air National Guard. I retired from the USAF in 2004 and have since worked at Hurlburt Field as a requirements program manager for an EC-130 aircraft.
My wife, Claudene, and I were married in 1974. I was assigned to Hurlburt Field in late 1998 and we moved to Niceville in 1999. We have lived here ever since. We have no children.
