In 2019, I retired from the U.S. Army as a Major after 24 years of service. My military career took me to many places around the world, most recently I was part of a special group of military advisors called Afghanistan-Pakistan (AFPAK) Hands stationed at the United States Central Command, MacDill Air Force Base. I recently deployed to Kabul, Afghanistan (RS HQ) from May 2017 until Feb 2018, previously I deployed to Afghanistan with the Special Operation Task Force-South in Kandahar Air Field (KAF) from 2013 to 2014.

My real estate career started in Orlando, Florida in 2006, later relocating to El Paso, Texas until 2010. I continued my real estate career in the Republic of South Korea partnering with local real estate professionals.
