My Life Story
I was born in Fort Worth, Texas. From the beginning, I had V8 power, jet engines and entrepreneurship in my blood, but we’ll get into that later. Soon after birth, my father moved the family to a small town outside of Fort Worth, Glen Rose, Texas. We lived in a small trailer home, and I shared a room with my sister Crystal and my brother Albert. Both of my parents worked very hard, and since I was the oldest, I took care of my siblings. We all pitched in to cook and clean for ourselves.
Throughout my childhood, I loved machines like cars, engines, car drawings, and hot wheels. My father would flip cars from auctions on the side hustle. I remember this late model third gen Camaro my father brought home when I was 4. I fell in love with that car and my love towards cars hasn’t left. My mother was a manager at the local Dairy Queen, and she was loyal to it.
On June 14, 2004, I joined the United States Air Force as a F-16 crew chief and now A-10. I went to the recruiter’s office after my freshman year of college. I was gone to boot camp five days after meeting the recruiter’s office. I enjoyed every moment from the physical part to the education. I enjoyed all the skills I gained in working on multi-million war machines. These skills gave me the confidence of working on my own cars. I have been able to rebuild my cars and take pride in my work completely.
I am currently as of May 2018, served 14 years and have deployed to Afghanistan twice, lived in Korea for a total of two years, Italy for three years, and Japan for two years. I have traveled to 35 countries which have given me a vast scope of the world. The experiences I gained from traveling are priceless.
I have accomplished a lot in my military career and gained a wealth of knowledge. I made a lot of friends and new family members.
In recent years, I have been reading books on business, economics, history, philosophy, self-development and traveling. I am addicted to learning more and more I read. This already large world has opened up more doors. In this book.
I have a few major goals I want to reach. First, take care of my mother as she is not well. Second is continue to help others, whether military or civilian. 3rd is to own all my favorite cars.
I hope my story can build some trust and lead towards relationships. I firmly believe in working towards your passion which transcribes to a happy life.
