Additional Information

It has always been my ambition to make a difference in this world by helping innovate new technologies, striving to be the best at what I do and be a role model to future generations.

Challenging myself mentally through problem solving and innovation. Testing my endurance physically under water and in the air. Pushing myself beyond my limits, outside my comfort zone, and extending my capabilities and reach to make that difference.
