I was born and raised in Ohio and joined the Army in 1988 where my first assignment was to Germany during the end of the “Cold War” and the Berlin Wall coming down, I was also stationed at Fort Campbell. I retired with 20 years of service. I’ve worked with the Belmont County Sheriff’s Office in Ohio and I’m currently with the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office in Kansas.

I met my wife Anne “Storm” Adams in 1996, married in 1998 and had a ready made family with 2 daughters and a son. I now have 6 grandchildren with the oldest Gage ‘Bumblebee” Brewer being an Apprentice with the OZ chapter.
I joined the Defenders in September 2008 as a Charter Member and VP of the Oz Chapter. I became the National Quartermaster in 2009 and then National Secretary in 2012. I ride a 2017 HD Ultra CVO.
