Personal Summary

My name is Elliott Rivera.  I was active duty for 4 years.  My duty station was Fort Hood.  I was an E-5 and was a 91G (MOS doesn't exist anymore).  I left to study film full time.  I am about to graduate from UNLV and attain a Bachelor's degree in Film Studies.  I want to continue to serve as a 25V if possible.  I currently work as a Freelance Assistant Editor for the UFC in Las Vegas NV.  I was told that I would be working here at least until the end of the year.  I hope they keep me and I am able to work and serve simultaneously.  I don't usually answer unknown phone numbers but if you leave a message or send a text I will get back to you ASAP. Thank you.
