I began a career in aviation in 1988 when I took my first flying lesson in a Grumman Trainer. My original goal was to get a job flying with the major airlines. I pursued that goal until I reached the commuter airline level and realized that although I enjoyed my job I spent two-thirds of my time away from home. I decided to go back to flight instruction and find a great place to do it. Giving flight instruction has become my passion, and I intend to do it until I am very old.
I live in the east bay. When I am not teaching I enjoy hiking, bicycling, water-skiing, movies, and entertaining at home.
