Always interested in aviation, I decided at a young age that I wanted to soar among the skies as a commercial airline pilot. My first exposure to aviation was a flight as a 10 year old where I was able to go up into the cockpit and assist the flight crew with the pre-departure checklists. This seminal moment was the same moment that I knew without a doubt that my love for aviation was real. In order to get more exposure to aviation, I was an active member of Civil Air Patrol's Cadet Program in High School. Once I graduated High School, I decided to attend Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University's Prescott Campus where I eventually graduated and became a full time flight instructor, check airman, upset recovery instructor and part time faculty member. After completing my Master's in Aviation Safety, I decided to pursue an airline career after nearly 7 years of full time instructing, but promise to return to instructing when time permits in order to pass on the shared knowledge of aviation gained from years in the industry. An avid fan of aviation business and history, I have a particular interest in how safety principles can be incorporated in business to make processes easier and safer while maintaining efficiency. I enjoy working with AeroCrew News because it is an opportunity for me to share what I love the most, and I strongly encourage feedback or suggestions for the purposes of common learning and making aviation safer and more enjoyable for all involved.
