Instructor Bio

I am a Washington native, and the Aviation bug started with me at a young age, my mom was a safety manager at Boeing when I was 4, so I would go into work with her, or be at the day care that Boeing provided across the street. When I was a little older She started working for Alaska Airlines as their ASAP Manager. I was able to go in with her and fly on the full motion sims.

Then when I was 12 I got to go on a delivery flight for my birthday and got to sit in the cockpit during takeoff out of Boeing Field. Even from a young age, I have always had aviation in my blood, either if it was flying full motion sims, or flying sims at home on my computer. I could just never get enough.


I didn’t actually start flying till after college, because I was an athlete all through school, and wanted to continue to play Baseball throughout college. I went to College in Minnesota, and played 3 years of baseball for Crown College.


Aviation isn’t just a career for me, it is a lifestyle. I’m constantly trying to learn as much information as I can to better myself as a Pilot, and as an Instructor.

In my free time, I love going to baseball games, going on hikes with my wife, as well as exploring the beautiful outdoors that we have here in the Pacific Northwest. I look forward to inspire the next generation of pilots, and showing them the beauty of the world through Aviation.
