My Responsibilities
As your flight instructor safety is of upmost importance. Responsibilities also include ensuring you are knowledgeable, prepared, and confident to achieve your goals in aviation.

My Bio
I grew up in the Greater Nashville Area and attended the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. At UTC I was in ROTC and wanted to purse aviation but did not meet the eye requirements at the time. A couple years ago, I received corrective surgery on my eyes and started looking into pursuing my life-long passion of becoming a pilot. In December of 2022, I made the commitment to pursue my dream and haven’t looked back since.

My Hobbies
I love snowboarding, working out, hunting, and hanging out with friends.

My Favorite Thing About Wings
Wings is a great environment to learn and surround yourself with others that love aviation. The staff and flight instructors truly care about safety and developing great pilots.

My Motto
“So if you stay ready, you ain’t gotta get ready, and that is how I run my life.” – Will Smith

My Message to You
Learning new skills such as flying can be complex and confusing, but it is so fulfilling as you progress. If you prepare yourself and study it helps to shallow the learning curve and gets you where you want to be quicker.
