Hobby: Precision rifle competitions
How did you get into that? I have always been a hunter and gun enthusiast and wanted to try something new.
How long have you been doing it? A little over a year.
What do you like about it? I enjoy the mental and physical aspect. You must know how your bullet will travel in the weather conditions, and many matches include hiking and physical obstacles, which makes it even more challenging.
How often do you compete? Every few months, depending on where the matches are held. I usually travel to Raton, New Mexico, or compete here in Oklahoma.
How did you hear about the job at TCEC? I was a seasonal employee when the substation supervisor let me know about an opportunity in his department.
What were you doing before you joined the co-op? I was attending Oklahoma Panhandle State University (OPSU).
What do you like most about working at the co-op? My co-workers have done an excellent job teaching and training me. They take the time and make the effort to help me along the way.
Education: I have an associate degree in agricultural science from OPSU, and I am working on a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from Arizona State University online.
What else do you enjoy doing in your free time? I enjoy working on antique cars. When I was in high school, my dad helped me restore a 1975 K5 Blazer, and we are currently working on a 1976 CJ7 Jeep.
One random fact about you: I write and do most things right-handed, but I am left eye dominant, so I shoot left-handed.
