He is a graduate of the Department of Defense's accredited journalism school with honors, and graduated magna cum laude from the University of Maine with a BA in Business Marketing.
He began his career in 2000 as a public relations specialist in the U.S. Navy. He spent three years in San Diego onboard the Navy command ship USS Coronado, where he won multiple Navy-wide awards as editor of the ship's daily newspaper.
