Hello. Thank you for visiting my site. This site is about impact and connecting. That’s a lot easier to do since you are here.
When I was eight years old, I rode the bus to school. Each morning I would wait with my brother and sister for the giant, lumbering social experiment to pop over the top of the hill and pick us up. One morning as I walked up the steps on the bus, I realized it was unusually full. Another bus had broken down and we had extra students aboard. On that ride I met a smiling freckle faced girl. That smiling freckle faced girl has been my wife now for over fifteen years. We have a five year old son and a one year old daughter.
I left for the Army as soon as I finished high school. I became a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne Division and deployed to both Afghanistan and Iraq. I spent almost sixteen months in a combat zone and it has had a profound effect on the way I view the world.
I left the Army because I love to fly. I was a student for a year and then I built flight time as a flight instructor in Florida helping others to earn their pilot certificates. I was hired in 2006 by a commercial airline and have spent over 7500 hours in the last nine years flying passenger jets around the US, Canada and Mexico. If you fly a lot, it’s possible that we’ve spent some time together. I still love to fly. As cheesy as it sounds, I picked the right job for me. I love the precision that goes into the job and I take great pride in a safe operation. The absolute best part though is the people I work with each week.
Thanks for coming to my site. You are welcome to hang out for awhile.
