|Early Life||Early Life: He grew up basically a spoiled rich boy, spent alot of time not doing school work but snowboarding. At 16 his snowboarding skills attracted alot of attention from Sponsors and women alike, At 18 was a high paid professional Snowboarder. By the age of 20 all the sponsors dried up and he was out on his butt.|
|Adult Life||Adult Life: He was told by his dad Join the service or get a real job, no more pretending. That there would not be any money coming from him. So he joined the academy and started as a viper jock but it didn't fit. An instructor suggested a Raptor, and from there it was history. He and his Raptor are one when he flies. His instructor called him a natural behind the Raptors controls.
He learned the hard way not to piss off his deck crew, as on his first ship, the Columbia, the cocky rich boy came out and he was cocky towards a deck chief. The chief changed a few setting in the cockpit and caused him to hit the deck hard, Gibbs confronted the Chief and by the time the fists finished the point was clear dont mess with deck hands. From that point on he changed his attitude towards everyone.
YR 92 he and several vipers were flying close formation for a Memorial Ceremony and one viper had a malfunction and slammed into his Raptor causing it to spin out and crash hard into a building. The viper pilot was able to eject but Gibbs wasn't lucky. It took several hours to dig through the collapsed building to find him suspended from the seat with two broken legs and broken shoulder. He was rushed in for surgery and was able to make a full recovery after spending a year behind a desk at Fleet headquarters.
