My Responsibilities
My responsibility and highest priorities are the safety and proficiency of my students. I also want to ensure that my students love what they’re doing and that they are having fun. I want my students to be passionate and excited about the field they are entering, and I feel it is my responsibility to cultivate a rigorous yet enjoyable learning environment.

My Bio
I was born and raised in Augusta, Georgia. I grew up working in my parents’ restaurants, where I learned the importance of hard work. I initially attended Flagler College in St. Augustine, Florida, for my freshman year, where I played tennis. I transferred schools and eventually graduated with a degree in Business and Entrepreneurship from Clemson University in South Carolina. Clemson is also the place where I met my lovely wife. We got married in March of 2021 and moved to Greenville, South Carolina. I received the majority of my flight training at Greenville Aviation and started instructing there in November of 2021. While we loved Greenville, my wife and I moved to the Nashville area in April of 2022 because my wife is attending physician assistant school at Trevecca Nazarene University. We are both enjoying living in Mount Juliet and love our new city.

My Hobbies
Tennis (or any sport), Frisbee, Flying, Hiking, Traveling, Fishing.

My Favorite Thing About Wings
I was immediately drawn to Wings of Eagles because of their professionalism and the genuine character of everyone I have met here.

My Motto
“Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.”

Colossians 3:23-24

My Message to You
My goal is to give each of my students the best flying experience. I also want to help my students understand how to make flight school as cost-effective as possible. However, regardless of the flight instructor you choose, you can’t go wrong with Wings of Eagles!
