I started flying in England nearly 25 years ago and received my Private Pilot License before I’d taken my first driving lesson. I now hold FAA Airline Transport Pilot (AMEL), Commercial Pilot (ASEL, ASES, G), and Flight Instructor (CFI, CFII, MEI) certificates with over 2,500 hours of flight experience in more than 115 different airplane types.

I’m lucky to be able to enjoy a wide variety of flying, from jets to seaplanes to aerobatics in experimental taildraggers. Every flight and every airplane offers an opportunity to learn something new or improve upon existing skills – one of the many aspects of aviation I find so alluring and strive to share with students.

I studied at Cambridge and Stanford Universities where I received graduate degrees in Applied Physics and Aeronautical Engineering and now work in the technology industry when not up in the air.
