I was born in Richmond, Virginia in 1989 and am the eldest of 4 children. I attended Benedictine High School in Richmond and graduated in 2007; I ran cross country, wrestled, ran track, shot on the rifle team, was an officer in JROTC and a member of National Honor Society. I then attended the United States Naval Academy and graduated in 2011; I participated in intramural boxing, earned a Bachelor of Science in English, and was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant in the Marine Corps.

I served for 5 years and was stationed in Camp Lejeune, NC. I deployed twice: the first deployment was aboard the USS San Antonio to the Persian Gulf in 2013 and the second deployment was to Okinawa, Japan in 2015. I finished my active duty service in May 2016 and transitioned into the Marine Reserves (I drill in Quantico, VA once a month) and began my career at Northwestern Mutual.

I am engaged to the love of my life, Laura Warmke, who is a Pathology Resident Doctor at VCU.
