When I was a child, my father received his private pilots license, and would always take me flying with him. This got me hooked! From an early age I had always known I wanted to fly for a living. It started when I attended college and received a degree in aviation, along with all my certificates. After graduating, I instructed at that college for three years, teaching everything from pre-solo to CFI applicants.
After building my time, I moved on to an airline and flew turboprops all around the U.S. and Caribbean, mastering my single pilot IFR skills. After a few months being away from the teaching world, I quickly realized how much I enjoyed instructing, and continued to teach the turboprop transitions and training future ATPs at the airline.
With the teaching bug still in me, I came to Rainier Flight Service to continue educating future aviators. Now I'm here to help manage and create the best flight training available to you.
When I'm not flying, I love spending time with my wife and daughter.
