Simply put, I love family and I love aviation. From my private pilot license to flying fighter jets in the Air Force to flying a biplane in airshows, I do love aviation. With my wife, son, and daughter by my side, family is the foundation of our success and of this great country of ours.
I am a husband, a father and a fighter pilot and an airshow pilot. I am fortunate to have the opportunity to fly airplanes. I don't deserve it and it isn't my right. I set goals and worked hard. More importantly, I am blessed to be surrounded by good people. Surround yourself with good people. Family and pilots are a good start!
My flying started in a Beechcraft Sundowner, learning how to be a private pilot. Next step was Air Force pilot training and the T-37 and T-38. After two operational tours flying the F-16 in Korea and Germany, then back to the states, instructing in the F-16 and learning aerobatics in a biplane. With Sean as my mentor, and competitions as well as airshows, I learned how to skydance and share this passion of flight with audiences across North America.
Next came a seven year partnership with a major sponsor, performing all across America for over 45 million people. My team experienced all types of airshow venues from a few thousand to a couple million people. We represented our brand, delivered ROI, and my family came along for the ride. What a great chapter in our lives. Now that I have retired from the military after 30 years, we are ready to embark on another airshow chapter. Please contact us if you want to be a part of our next great chapter of aviation.
