For his contributions to the U.S. Air Force, he is honored to have been presented with the Civilian Foreign Service Award from the United States Department of Transportation. He attributes his success to his parents, who instilled in him a stellar work ethic. Looking toward the future, his goal is to keep the airport on its current trajectory for success before considering retiring in five years.
