My day job is interior design and have owned my own design business since 1993.  I always wanted to learn how to fly. So in 2005 I signed up for the ground class at the local community college.  I started flying in a Piper Warrior and received my private pilots certificate later that year.

I completed my instrument rating in 2008. Then in 2011 I was given a ride in a Piper Cub. It was such a thrill!  I love the freedom of flying and the taildragger seemed to bring that freedom to a new level.

Later that year I was endorsed in that Piper Cub. Since then I have enjoyed flying in a Super Cub, Cessna 140, Cessna 185, Cessna 195, T6 SNJ-5 (Texan) and deHaviland Beaver (DHC-2).

I really enjoy landing on grass strips and the watching the beautiful sunsets from the sky.  Now I’m flying a Cessna 140 and loving it!
