He attended Spring Valley High School in Columbia, SC in 1993. He was baptized in the name of Jesus Christ at Bible Light Holiness Church of Ridgeway, SC and was filled with the Holy Ghost as evidenced by his ability to speak in tongues according to Acts 2: 38.

His selfless dedication to duty, professional attitude and outstanding abilities reflect great credit to himself, this command, and the United States Army.
