I always used to tell my family as a kid that I was going on an adventure.
Be it mostly in my mind, but that grew and eventually made me the man I am today.
I was born in a small suburb outside of Chicago, Illinois USA on a cold night in November. I grew up like most American children did during the 1990s. Most of my early years consisted of playing with neighborhood friends and going to school, and then the occasional AYSO soccer games on Saturdays. My mom and dad would come to watch me play and cheer me on and I mean, man... those were probably some of the best days of my life. I graduated high school and then enrolled in a college not to far from my hometown. I majored in biochemistry and graduated in the year of 2008 as one of the top in my class. After graduating I was approached with a job offer by the a defense contractor for the US Military. My job was to collect blood samples from pandemic zones for testing. These samples are eventually sent in to the CDC for further analysis and reporting. I know this job sounds crazy and dangerous, but to be honest this is the type of adventure I had always been looking for as a kid. I was stationed the DRC in Africa during the Ebola breakout of 2014, and then I continued to research the Ebola virus in to 2017. That was until I was notified by the CDC that I was going to be sent to Chernarus for the pandemic, and that is how I ended up stranded in this hell hole.
