I’m incredibly passionate about amateur radio, not only as a hobby, but as critical need to our community in times of disaster response and community events.  I also want to be able to help bring up new amateur radio operators, including our youth, to ensure amateur radio continues for generations to come.

I’m no stranger to incident management and emergency communications. For nine years I worked my way up in the ranks, ending in Lieutenant, of a local police department’s auxiliary unit.

If there’s anything I can help you with, please don’t hesitate to reach out via email or Hamshack Hotline ext. 50195.
