Why did you pick your 501st callsign/alias?

I’m a huge fan of Top Gun

When did you join the Legion and why?

Joined in 2016 because not only am I a huge Star Wars nerd but I love the Charity part of this organization.

Of all of the troops you have been a part of, which one has stood out the most and why?

There was a wedding troop I did which was so much fun. The bride and groom loved us and we got so many great photos done.

How has being a part of the 501st impacted your life?

The family aspect of this organization has constantly warmed my heart. I have met some of the most amazing people and have made so many wonderful friends.

Can you give us an idea as to the kind of support you get from friends and family regarding the 501st and all the great things that you have done with the GA Garrison?

My family loves that I’m part of this organization. My wife (who is not a fan of Star Wars) is so supportive that she made a costume and joined with me. I’ve seen so many amazing things and so much love in this garrison. When someone is in need we all come together to show support or to help them through a difficult time.

And lastly, is there anything Star Wars related or not, that people might not know about you that they might be surprised to find out?

I was a competitive Fencer and have a degree in Filmmaking.
