Safety will always be our top priority, while creating a positive learning environment. I enjoy bringing new pilots into the aviation community, and teaching them to fly safely in visual and instrument conditions. Flying together, we’ll advance your flight skills to achieve your aviation goals.
I was born in Washington, DC and grew up in Knoxville. I attended college at the Univ. of Memphis, and started flying after I graduated and was commissioned in the Navy, in 2006. I went through flight school in Florida and Texas, ultimately flying the P-3C Orion in Hawaii. After the Navy, I worked in the unmanned sector, flying drones for the Army overseas. I returned to flying and earned my CFI and CFI-I at Wings of Eagles. I enjoy teaching, instructing, and getting more people in the cockpit and started on their own aviation journey.
Time with family, music, working on old cars/trucks.
