I loved flying from a young age. For years, I played flight simulator every night at home. When I was 10 years old, my dad, who was never a pilot himself, decided to take me up to the local flight school for a discovery flight. From that day in June, 2001, I was hooked! I obtained my private pilot certificate at the youngest possible age (17), and progressed steadily throughout the years. While many of my peers had ambitions to fly for the airlines, I realized, after becoming a flight instructor, that instructing was what I really loved doing! I have been instructing full time since the Spring of 2014, and also fly part-time as a first officer on a privately owned corporate (Gulfstream 100) jet.
