I am a Pirate
I dodged a missile
and became an Emperor.
My name is David Burnell IV and I played DI college football for the East Carolina University Pirates where I was nicknamed "The Flea" because of my height and quickness.
After graduation, a guy with a nice uniform told me I could travel the entire world for free, so I enlisted in his organization called the U.S. Marine Corps. The Marines tend to travel to Iraq and Afghanistan a lot which I found myself there for a total of 24 months. Within those months a rocket hit 10 feet outside of the T-wall and I realized I traveled enough.
I got back to the states and started my own company, a lifestyle brand encouraging military veterans to pursue their creative passion. Now I am somewhere in Europe creating my own Empire.
