Hello, My name is Steve. I am a 29 year old with a wonderful wife and two children. I was brought up on the West Coast in California, but now live in Pennsylvania. I spent 6 years in the Air Force and just recently separated. Unfortunately, I was never able to serve any duty in Iraq or Afghanistan, in fact I never deployed or went TDY anywhere further than 3 hours from home. It was nice, but at the same time I would have liked to see more of the world. My service in the Air Force was very fulfilling and I would not have traded it for anything.
During that time I finished both my Bachelors and my Masters degrees. My Masters was in International Relations, a topic that I am very passionate about and will focus much of this blog on.
Currently, I work for a large consulting firm. I like to equate my job with those of the “Bob’s” from Office Space. Though, we do slightly different work.
Before joining the Air Force, I served a mission in Alberta and NW Territories, Canada for the LDS church, attended BYU-Idaho, and, for a short time, the University of Utah (Go UTES!!!). So you may well see some BYU bashing come college football season.
Enjoy the blog and I am always open for suggestions and recommendations.
