UCLA Veterans

Bio- A UCLA alumni class of 2018, earned my masters in rehabilitation counseling from CSULA in 2021. I love my traveling with my wife, love the Dodgers, enjoy cooking, spending time with my dogs, play guitar, go to concerts and proud to help raise my nephew Simon (as his surrogate dad so to speak).

Branch– Army family

Fun Fact– I come from a proud military family that has served and fought in every war from the American Revolution, War of 1812, the Civil War (Union), WWI & WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War, Iraq War, as well as the War on Terror. Although disability kept me from serving in the Army, I have worked with the VA and now proudly support veteran students at UCLA.
