I am originally from King City, California. I grew up on a farm for about 10 years before my family moved into town. I grew up around agriculture since my dad worked on farms and my mom worked in a tomato packing warehouse. I had a newspaper route delivering the Salinas Californian and I also mowed lawns. We had a bunch of different cats and dogs and I have been around pets most of my life. I did good at King City’s high school and I decided to join the military right about of high school.
