Firefighting is my passion and I am seeking employment in which I can use the skills that I acquired in firefighting/EMT school. I have worked with and around machines all my life, including automotive and aviation machinery, and would ideally like to combine my experience in this area with my skills in firefighting. 

Having played a variety of sports, especially lacrosse and rugby, I am good in shape and have a strong work ethic and determination to succeed at getting the job done, no matter the level of difficulty. I am a quick learner and take guidance well and through experience have learned to get along with a broad variety of personalities and diverse groups. All in all, it's important to me to do my job well and I have no problem getting my hands dirty in the course of doing just that.
