I was born in Des Moines, Iowa, in 1989. I lived in Winterset, Orient, Creston, and Corning, Iowa. I graduated from Corning, Iowa, in 2009, and shortly after, I became a Creston Volunteer firefighter. I currently work at Creston School as a janitor. Right now I love being a firefighter. The guys I work with mean a lot because it’s a brotherhood.
