My passion in aviation started when I was very little. When I was young, my parents frequently took me to our local airport to watch the airplanes take off and land.  Some kids like Chuck e Cheese’s, but I preferred to be at the airport.  When I attended the University of California, Santa Barbara I finally had the opportunity to take flying lessons. There I completed my Private Pilot Certificate and Instrument Rating. I graduated from UCSB with a BA in Global Studies.  When I decided to make aviation my career, I moved back to the San Francisco Bay Area to complete my commercial and flight instructor certificates here at Advantage Aviation.

For primary flight training, I use a specialized curriculum that will keep you informed and up to date on your progress. All students will be supplied a Procedures Manual that is FAA-approved and individually tailored to the aircraft flown. For other than primary training, I can perform Flight Reviews, Aircraft Checkouts, Introduction Flights, Ground Instruction and more. My goal is to make the process of Flight Training as fluid as possible for you, and I am here every step of the way to ensure your success.

When I’m not flying, you will often find me somewhere in the outdoors. I am an avid surfer and mountain biker and enjoy looking for new hiking trails and camping spots along the California coast.
