 First and foremost, I love to fly! Ever since I first took flight at age 14, I was hooked on the dream of becoming a professional aviator. That was day one of journey driven by a yearning to become a smarter pilot and person than I was the day before. Following the completion of my PPL at Goodrich Aviation in Endicott, NY, I moved to Daytona Beach, FL to further pursue my aspirations. 
Over the following five years, I earned various licenses and ratings to include CFI, CFII, MEI, and AGI. During that time, I was an employee of Phoenix East Aviation as a Gold Seal Flight Instructor, Part 141 Check Airman, and Part 135 Captain. In addition, I began working on my Bachelor of Science in Aeronautics with a minor in Aviation Safety and Business Administration through Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. In 2008, I was hired by Gama Aviation on both a CE-550 & CE-560 aircraft. Throughout my tenure with Gama, I steadily developed and progressed through several advancements ending my time there on a CE-750 for iHeartRadio. In 2014, I followed my ambitions to IBM Flight Operations where I presently serve as a Standards Captain on both the G650ER and DA-2EASy aircraft.

When I'm not getting my passport stamped, I am at home with my wife and daughter. I have discovered over time how essential it is to lead a balanced life through prioritizing what is most important. That takes form in spending time with my family and engaging in favorite activities such as boating, cycling, golfing, fitness, swimming, just to name a few.

My true passion is to share the joy of aviation with others and to give back in a way that allows others to experience the extraordinary opportunities that were afforded to me.

"At the end of the day, it's not about what you have or even what you've accomplished... It's about who you've lifted up, who you've made better. It's about what you've given back."
