Instructor Bio

Like many, I’ve wanted to be pilot for as long as I can remember. I started my flight training at Rainier Flight Service when I was 16 while attending Raisbeck Aviation High School. After my private pilot training, I took a 3-year break from flying while I earned my degree in History and War Studies from King’s College London in the UK.  Once back in the US, I continued my flight training at Rainier fulltime.

Flying with the talented and passionate instructors at RFS helped me grow as both a pilot and a person. Now as a CFI, I hope to bring the same talent and passion to the next generation of future pilots.  My objective is to help you meet your flying goals and tailor my instruction to your own unique learning style.

When I’m not flying you can find me petting my cats, watching sports, or building model ships!  I’m excited to be a part of the talented team of Rainier instructors and I look forward to flying with you!
