He was an avid hockey player and was a member of the state championship Westside Warrior team. He joined the Marines in 2017 and attended boot camp at Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego in 2018. During his service, he deployed several times, serving in Japan, South Korea, Australia, Jordan and Afghanistan.
