My name is Tomas Villegas; I was born in October 1984 in Ogden, Utah to Mickie and Efrain Villegas. My father has played a big role in making me the strong spirited person I am today. The biggest lesson I took from my father's teachings is how hard work will get a person where they want to go in life; I still carry that with me to this day. This lesson has been the key to my success in the military, higher education, and my marriage.
I am married to a wonderful woman named Svetlana. I met her in her home town Riga, Latvia while stationed as an Marine Security Guard. She and I make a great team, as we have made it through many trials and tribulations without a scratch. We share a lot of the same interests and enjoy each other's company very much; we are, beyond doubt, each other's best friends. My wife and I are very active people; we spend at least 6 out of 7 days a week at the local gym. Whether it's running on the treadmill, lifting weights, or Yoga, we're together working out and pushing each other further. She is currently a full-time student at Weber State University working toward a Bachelor's in Dental Hygiene. In my spare time I like to play basketball, lift weights, build toy programs in Java and C++, play video games with friends, and watch movies.
