I have been enjoying flying airplanes since 2001. Instructing others how to fly airplanes has been my main occupation until recently and is something I enjoy doing for a living. In addition to flight instruction, I work on a full-time basis with SeaPort Airlines as a commercial pilot flying their Pilatus PC-12 and Cessna 208 Caravan aircraft. Since I fly commercially, I am not instructing as a way of building time, it is just to be able to share something I am passionate about with others who are interested. I have also obtained my Airframe & Powerplant Mechanic certifications and can work as an airplane mechanic when the weather slows down my flying time. I have found that having knowledge of aircraft systems to be a tremendous boost to my flying and instructing. The world of aviation offers endless possibilities for the types of jobs, aircraft, and locations associated with working as a pilot. I have enjoyed the variety and have no plans of pursuing another career field anytime soon!

When I'm not at the airport, I take advantage of living in the beautiful Pacific-Northwest. I spend my time in the summer months riding motorcycles, camping, and hiking. I've worked as a commercial salmon fisherman up on Bristol Bay, Alaska since 2004 during June & July and there is nothing like it! During the winter months, I spend my time hiding out from the rain by drinking coffee and reading, learning how to build websites, and playing guitar, and getting my outdoor time on Mt. Hood snowboarding.

I recently had the opportunity to spend 5 weeks in Papua New Guinea with Samaritan Aviation re-assembling their Cessna 206 amphibious floatplane that is currently being used for humanitarian and medical evacuation flights in remote villages. If you would like to see a video of the first flight into a village after the airplane was re-assembled, click here.
