Although I was only 2yo when ANH released, I grew up with Star Wars and have been a fan my entire life. I'm a tech nerd and have followed the 501st since shortly after it began, hoping to one day have my own authentic Stormtrooper costume. I'm married with four wonderful children ranging from age 22 to age 7, all of whom love the Star Wars franchise. Along with mine and my son's joint TK builds, I will be beginning the process of creating a Star Wars man cave very soon. Yes, I'm a fan. Fandom aside, I also enjoy bringing smiles to the faces of children, especially those who need it most during difficult times in life. I had a lot of experience doing this during my career as a firefighter, and now look forward to donning a new set of armor to do the same.
