Aviation Professional. Current in the PC-12 and EMB-145.
I attended Letourneau University from 2007-2010 where I earned a Bachelors of Science degree in the field of Aeronautical Science. While I was at Letourneau, I earned my Instrument rating as well as my Commercial Pilot's license and tailwheel endorsement. I also earned my CFI, CFII, and MEI instructor licenses.
I married my high-school sweetheart in January of 2011 and we have 3 boys. We are active members of Spring Baptist Church and we teach the 7th grade life group classes at the church. I have been a pilot with ExpressJet Airlines since January of 2012.
In September 2017, I moved into the Training Department of ExpressJet as a Ground Instructor on the EMB-145. I have loved every minute of instructing in the classroom and passing on my knowledge and experience to our new First Officers and Captains.
