I began, as many of us did, wanting to grow up an become a firefighter. I joined a small volunteer organization in my home town and the fire bug bit me hard. I've been doing this officially since 1986 - in the firehouse with my dad since I can remember - and can't imagine a better job in the whole world. When people ask me if I have to work tomorrow I reply, no I GET to work tomorrow. The secret of life is do what you love and love what you do. I've been blessed.
