Mr. Planes And Laws

About Me:

I joined the Air Force right after high school. I was immediately moved from maintenance to program management, where I built compliance programs essentially from scratch and trained others to do the same. After my contract ended, I went to law school. While at law school, I realized that I don’t like law, but I do like policy, compliance, and ESG.
