"I love being able to help people in a capacity very few others can. I also love the versatility of my job. I can ride on EMS and Fire calls and mitigate an array of emergencies. It’s always something different and exciting.

My wife and I have a rescue dog and her mother has two. They've all been raised together so we switch off keeping them at each other's houses. We keep them together most of the time.

Pets are great companions. Sometimes a relationship with a pet is easier than a relationship with another person. We adopted our dogs because we believe in giving animals in need a second chance."
