Instructor Bio

There was a time in my life when I thought I had the best office in the world, now I know I truly do. 


Prior to flying, I would head out every morning with a boat full of passengers 20 miles off the coast of Florida in the Gulf of Mexico. Blue water and blue skies, great music, and even better company, I started everyday happy to leave land behind with excited anglers. 

The day everything changed was when we were offshore without a boat or beach on the horizon when suddenly a jet screamed overhead, startling everyone onboard. Then, on their way back up to altitude, they rocked their wings. I was immediately filled with admiration for the experience that pilot was having. In that moment, it was then I realized I had the second-best office. 

I flew a Discovery flight in Destin, FL and decided to move to a large flight academy and go all-in on a Part 141 program to complete my training. 

While Florida has its many perks, my desire for the atmosphere the Pacific Northwest has to offer is what brought me to Seattle. 

Here at Rainier Flight Service, I am continuing my adventure and I look forward to helping you with yours!
