Grew up in a small town outside of Phoenix, ran away from his abusive father at the age of 12 so he knows how to survive on the bare minimum. Got into some trouble with he law at 17. and the judge gave him the choice, between jail, the military, or the peace corp. At this time he wasn't the type to take orders very well and wasn't going to join the army and wasn't going to jail. So he figured the next best thing was the peace corp. He figured he could see the world and do some good. Around his second year he met a beautiful Russian girl named Nicole. He fell in love with her right away, and after his 4 year stint with the Peace Corp was up, he decided to move to Russia with Nicole and maybe build a new life in a different country. During his time in the Peace Corp he learned a lot about first aid and treatment, Nicole was the reason he went to nursing school in the first place. He figured it was just the amount of pay without the huge responsibility are a true doctor. But little did he know an outbreak was on it's way, and the hospital he was assigned too would be ground zero.
