Welcome to AFJROTC. Hopefully, you will be a part of our unit for the full four years you are at Gateway. As you will see, there will be many leadership and team opportunities that will open up for you and it is our desire that you take full advantage of them.
I am one of the two AS 1 (first year AFJROTC cadets) instructors and teach the Aerospace portion (History of Flight) of our curriculum. This includes Exploring Flight (Ancient Flight through the Wright Brothers), Development and Evolution of Flight among other lessons. Uniform wear, drill and teamwork are also a large part of your learning experience this year.

I was fortunate to spend my younger life traveling and living in many different countries (Syria, Brazil, Holland, the US, Mexico, Africa, the Philippines and other). After spending a few years in college, I joined the Air Force and served 20 years as an aircraft mechanic and recruiter. I have been teaching AFJROTC since 2004 and here at Gateway since 2013. As you can see in the picture, I SCUBA dive (since 1979) and I love to ski (snow and water) and I love to work in my wood shop making things for my grandchildren.
