I am an underground miner with Nyrstar Mid Tennessee. Ive been drilling and blasting underground to bring out zinc for 3 years now 🧨

I stay alert by always properly inspecting my work areas for hazards and joining mine rescue was a way to not only improve on my own safety but ensure the safety of my underground family. ⛑️

The sky is the limit. I feel that with me being only 26 I have endless opportunities. I strive to gain as much knowledge in this industry as it will allow me. 🧐

My favorite team hands down is the 2006-2020 New Orleans Saints ⚜️
