my awesome adventure

The path to success is littered with obstacles - plan on kicking stuff out of your way if you intend to succeed.

Flying was originally a hobby.  I had embarked on a  career as an Aircraft Mechanical Engineer, but the flying bug ultimately took hold, so I earned my commercial license and gained some experience as a Flight Instructor and a Bush Pilot.  I said "yes" to every other flying opportunity that came my way, and ultimately commanded the Airbus A320 and A330, the Boeing 757 and 767, and the Boeing 747.  

Although the 747 is the feather in my cap, between my first airplane and the ‘jumbo,’ there are 37 different airplane types - and that number seems to continue growing.

Aside from flying I enjoy biking, sailing, scuba, wood & metalwork, shooting, mechanical tinkering, and building stuff.

On an academic note, I hold a Science Degree and  I’ve had the privilege of contributing to a book about the iconic Boeing 747.

To make a long story short, I’ve had a life full of great successes and a few miserable failures. There have been moments of great pride, together with instances of horrific regret.
