About Me

I am a motivated pilot that enjoys to learn new airplanes, as well as travel to new locations.  Currently I am conducting operations around North America, South America, the Caribbean and Europe.  I am currently serving as a Co-Captain on a Legacy 600 in corporate and charter operations full time, and contracting when the opportunity presents.  In the past, I have served as a Captain on the Lear 35 and 55 conducting international air ambulance operations, and as a Co-Captain and Contract pilot in the Citation X in a Corporate environment.  I am constantly looking for the opportunity to move into different types of aircraft and operations, allowing me to experience new parts of the world, and advance my career to better support myself and family.
