I joined the fire service in 1996 at the age of 19 at Haw Creek Vol. Fire Dept. I have been a member of a fire/rescue or EMS related service since then. Other Depts I've been active at include Fairview VFD, Upper Hominy VFD, Medic, NCFS-Madison Co. and Ebbs Chapel VFD in Madison Co. I also currently serve as a Lieutenant at French Broad Fire Rescue. As a teenager my brother was a Vol Firefighter and I began to see how close the fire service brotherhood was. I knew at that point I was wanting to pursue a future in the brotherhood as well. Over the years of serving various communities I have acquired numerous working relationships with folks from several areas. Update 2019- I have recently had an opportunity to be hired as part of the Charlotte Motor Speedway Track Services Fire Crew.
