LOCAL, DECORATED COMBAT VET,

HARVARD MBA, FAMILY MAN

INTENDS TO SERVE OUR COUNTRY AGAIN!

Born and raised on Long Island, Bull departed for Marine Corps Boot Camp before high school graduation.

However, before departing, he left some positive indelible memories with the school and his classmates.  Besides enthusiastically befriending all, regardless of clique, he redesigned the school’s mascot and led the transition away from the school’s association with the Confederate Flag.  Additionally, as the quarterback, he inspired the football team to record its first and only undefeated season.

After Boot Camp, Bull graduated from Syracuse University with a BS in Political Science and Speech Communication and was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant in the Marine Corps.

He served throughout the world as an Infantry Officer:  Leading Marines in Panamanian jungles (Operation Just Cause), Saudi Arabian deserts (Desert Shield/Desert Storm), and at Guantanamo Bay.

Bull left active duty to attend Harvard Business School, where he was elected class Co-President and was awarded his MBA.  He initiated his business career at Goldman, Sachs on Wall Street and then went on to serve as COO for a high-tech start-up in Israel and then as National Sales Manager for a premium sports apparel company on Long Island.

However, when the Islamists attacked on 9/11, Bull abandoned his business career path and voluntarily returned to active duty to serve our Nation.  He saw combat action in both Afghanistan and Iraq and then served as Congressional Liaison for the Special Operations Command on Capitol Hill, Washington, D.C.

With 25 combined years of service and his Daughter on the way, Bull retired as a Lieutenant Colonel to focus on being a Father.

Bull also reengaged his business interests as Vice President for a Five-Diamond resort in Las Vegas; CEO of a defense contracting company; Partner in a business development consulting firm; and presently, President of a health & wellness business and a Board Member for an amphibious light sport aircraft manufacturing business.

Bull is happily married to Beth and has: one amazing Daughter, Avery; an incredibly dynamic 90 year old Mother, Vivien; and one crazy Yellow Labrador, Murphy!

Of special note, and most interesting to some, is the fact that Bull was actually the one who prevented Jack Nicholson from assaulting Tom Cruise in the feature film, “A Few Good Men.”
