 Additional Information

What are you doing now:
I am a Military and Family Readiness Specialist for the New York National Guard in Rochester, NY.  My position primarily serves members of the New York Army National Guard and their families, but also assists Veterans of all branches and other services and their combined families, with military and regional resources before, during, and after deployments.  I also support Soldier and Family Readiness Groups (SFRG), assist and advise as a liaison between unit leadership and SFRG Volunteers, and train unit leaders and volunteers for their roles in the SFRG

I also assist my wife with her Professional Photography business, "Shoot For The Moon Photography" and Volunteer in numerous Veteran Organizations in the Rochester Region.
