He is all about transitions. He joined the Army five days after he graduated from high school and transitioned from an infantry team leader to the rank of sergeant. He completed two year-long deployments to Iraq, earning a Bronze Star for Valor and a Purple Heart following an enemy attack on his platoon. He then transitioned back to a civilian life that was different than the one he'd left. It was difficult, but he grew from the experience and wanted to help others in their journey. Through his veterans' writing group (that he created), his work with student veterans and military-connected students, this staff member, who works as Clemson's assistant director for military and veteran engagement, helps students successfully make the transition from military to civilian life. While he describes himself as a "normal guy," he's anything but normal. He's a hero and he's a Tiger.
