What is your favorite memory, story, experience, etc. while at the University Fire Department?

 It’s a tie between The Staten Show and watching Captain Phillips do 60 wide grip pullups, or maybe just smoking cigars behind Station 2 with all the guys. 

Brief History/Biography:

Born in Anchorage, Alaska. Graduated from Robert Service High School. Attended UAF Fire program from 2002-2004, where I met my wife in English class. Left to Arizona for paramedic program with Mr. Mark Bundy at my side. Came back to Alaska and started working as a remote site paramedic on the north slope. I started attending APICC process technology classes in 2009. Graduated with my Process Tech degree in 2010 and was hired on by BP Alaska. Loving life. I will never forget the University Fire Department and guys I worked with.
