Who Am I?
My flying career began with a few lessons during high school. After less than a year in the Navy, serving as ground crew for the H-60 Seahawk, I realized flying was my true passion. During my active duty service, I completed my flight training throughout different flight schools, where I benefited from various methods of teaching. This, in turn, helped me to become a successful instructor. While I was in active duty, I completed all my instructor ratings, and less than two years later, I added the Gold Seal endorsement to my instructor certificate. I graduated from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University with a Master of Science in Project Management.
My flying experience ranges from gliders to Gates Learjet 35/55 as an on-demand charter pilot, and currently flying as a Captain for CommutAir (United Express) flying a DHC-8-200/300 based in Newark, NJ. I is an FAA Gold Seal Certified Flight Instructor, ATP and is type-rated in LR-JET and DHC-8 and with over a thousand hours of instruction in general aviation flying.
