I’m a US Marine and veteran of the war in Iraq. In 2015, I assisted Chase Millsap form, launch, and manage the Ronin Refugee Project. As a former embedded Combat Advisor to the Iraqi Army, my heart aches for our foreign allies who are being forced to flee home in the face unspeakable circumstances. Born, raised, and educated in Michigan, I hold Midwestern values of respect and gratitude for nature and all her inhabitants. My work is in supporting the efforts of trustworthy and capable leaders I feel spurred to action by.
