"Conserve School changed my life. It expanded my horizons and showed me more of the world. It ignited a passion for travel and adventure in me. Senior year of high school I went to King's Academy, an American style boarding school in Jordan where I studied Arabic and learned about the region's complex geopolitics and humanitarian issues. After graduating, I attended the United States Naval Academy and majored in History and Arabic. At the Naval Academy, I had a rich education and some pretty incredible experiences. I soloed an airplane for the first time, got to command a 105 foot boat through New York harbor, and sail a 44 foot sailboat on an 800 mile round trip. In 2017 I graduated and commissioned as an Ensign in the United States Navy and moved to Pensacola, Florida to begin the two year flight training program. This June, I completed Primary flight training, was selected for advanced training as a Helicopter pilot, and married my best friend, Ruth. Within the next year, I hope to complete advanced training, earn my wings, and be stationed in San Diego to fly the MH-60S Seahawk".
