I began dreaming of flying since my first discovery flight in a 1942 gull-wing Stinson Reliant outside the Tillamook cheese factory in Oregon, when I was 5 years old. I started flight training in 2009 and became a certified flight instructor in 2010. My background includes flying some charter operations in a Citation, flying for a regional airline, and becoming an Airframe and Powerplant mechanic. I am extremely passionate for aviation and enjoy sharing what I've learned. I am committed to safety first, and growing knowledgeable aviators.
