Professional Summary

Growing up in an aviation family my eyes have been looking skyward from a very young age. Working my way through high school paying for my private pilot certificate got me started before heading off to college to finish my certificates and ratings while earning a bachelors degree. I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to earn my A&P through experience which also allowed me to be around airplanes daily. My passion has always been heavily involved in aviation and upholding the high standards of safety and professionalism within the industry on both the aviation maintenance side and pilot side. With experience in both aviation maintenance and flying aircraft I have a great understanding of how the systems operate together. Being a flight instructor has taught me many new skills including time management, crew communication, and completing required items in a timely cost efficient manner. As a Commercial MEL/SEL instrument rating and CFI with a complex/high performance endorsement I currently have the following flight hours:


Multi Engine-14.2


Cross country-225.2

Simulated instrument- 66.1

Actual instrument- 24.6

Dual given- 185.5

Complex- 28.4

High performance-63.0

Tailwheel- 20.1
