I am humbled to win the Monument Madness competition with the National Fire Dog Monument I was fortunate to create. The National Fire Dog Monument was up against the best-of-the-best in Washington, D.C. and I was excited to be in the running.
My hope is to inspire others to visit and learn about the artwork throughout D.C. I believe the bronze sculpture will be a timeless piece for every one to enjoy. My hope is that many people will visit the National Fire Dog Monument to learn about arson dogs and how they work to fight crime throughout the United States.
My dream is to continue creating memorable sculptures that serve as memorials for the heroes we have lost, and reminders for the heroes fighting every day. As a firefighter myself, I am proud to have created this monument that celebrates the good works of arson dogs and their handlers.
I have an incredible respect for the National Seabee Memorial, and it was certainly a tough competition. The National Fire Dog Monument community pulled together in the end, and I’m grateful for their support. I want to thank both State Farm and the American Humane Association, because without their support this monument would have never become a reality.
