Instructor Bio

My passion for aviation began at a very young age. It all began when I watched Luke Skywalker fly his X-Wing fighter through the trenches of the Death Star. I wanted to understand how a ship like that could fly. My curiosity led me to an encyclopedia of military planes, which I still have to this day. I read through the entire book learning about why certain fighters were able to out maneuver others and how they all had their strengths and weaknesses. If you can’t tell already, I am obsessed with aviation history and movies.  All you have to do is ask me which plane was the perfect warbird of WWII if you really want me to talk your ear off. I’m originally from seattle, but I have lived all over the U.S. I completed all of my training in the greater Philadelphia area and flew across the entire country in three days.

I have a few mottos that have helped me through my training. “Slow is smooth, smooth is Fast.”

“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is history, but now is a gift. That is why they call it the present.” - Master Oogway

However, my favorite quote of all time is, “ohhh, you’ve gotta be quicker than that!” - guy from the State Farm commercial.
