About Me

Hello and thanks for visiting my web page. I am an independent contractor and commercial pilot with over 2600 hours of flying experience.  Over the years I have flown throughout this quarter of the North American continent acquiring experience in both a multi crew executive charter environment and flying single engine bush aircraft. On the ground I have assisted in the production of aviation training programs using programs such as Powerpoint. During this time I have gained an excellent  understanding of  standard operating procedures and current GPS technology. Over the course of my career I have upheld a strong sense of professionalism coupled with great customer service skills.  I believe you will find this to be outstanding combination making me a great asset in achieving business objectives.


I love to explore. On this continent I have been to hundreds of towns and cities from the Arctic to Florida. I have also been to the Bahamas, Mexico, England, Spain, and Mauritius Island. On a road trip you might be annoyed because I will stop at every garage sale trying to find an exciting hidden treasure. I enjoy hiking and walking in general, as well as biking. The slower speed gives me more time to take in the scenery. I also love to learn and try new things out. I have even made a few oil paintings of landscapes and pets, most of which  I give away as gifts. I prefer action packed films and television, and mostly read about current events or history. Ancient mysteries fascinate me especially, but I also do a lot of reading about more recent times. You can count on me to be up to date about the latest world news.

I have a special interest in  nutrition and sharing what i learn with others. Its amazing how a specific  food can protect a specific body part. My experience with pets has shown me how most nutritional knowledge applies to humans just as much as it does to dogs or cats.  When it comes to my own diet the most important things i am conscientious about including in my own diet are berries, greens, and omega 3 oils. The less chemicals the better so i prefer organic foods and drinking well water over tap water.

My favourite foods to eat are Mexican, Chinese and Indian. I go to a cardio class a few times a week to try and stay in shape. The detoxifying sweat you work up in those classes is good for you!

I believe overcoming prejudices towards others is one of the greatest challenges for the human race and the key to solving many of our problems.

Check out my photo gallery to get a glimpse into where I have been. My last adventure was a cross country driving trip where I visited Mount Rushmore and the spectacular Canadian Rockies. And drop me a line if want to find out more. I always love to hear from fellow travelers.


I would like help make the lives of others better. I am also looking for my next big adventure. There are still many places I want to visit and even more to which I want to return. The camera is charged up and my backpack is packed; drop me a line if you know where I should go next!

Here are a couple of videos I made while managing a small bush aircraft as an independently contracted consultant in Northern Canada
