I am A fulltime firefighter paramedic , I love to learn and expand my mind. I like to net work with other medics and firefighters to bounce ideas back and forth. I have 3 kids and a great wife that takes great care of the kids and me. She Is always at my side, she will defend me and stand by me no matter what is thrown our way. She dose not get mad when I have a beer. She dose not care when I golf. She is proud of what I do, but most of all she Is my soulmate.
I Love Being in EMS Because
