Why did you join this group?

No answer yet

Tell us an airport/restaurant you would love for us to fly in to.

I went in to Shelter Cove in Sep 2011 and loved it. Not too many food options but there are a few places within walking distance of the field. This would also be a great place for a pack lunch sort of thing as there are park benches by the ocean - still only a short walk from the strip.

What aircraft do you fly?

I rent a C-172 out of the KEDU Cal Aggie Flying Farmers club.

What led you to abandon logic and income to be a part of aviation?

A complete lack of logical thinking. I've always stared skyward, but never thought being a pilot was within reach until I was 20 ish when I saw an ad saying you could be a pilot for around 4k. 2 years and almost 11k later I was a pilot! It's the best thing I ever did and has helped create some of my better memories - but like the best drugs, it's never enough.

What is your favorite flying memory?

Taking a flight with my mom with two backpacks in the back seat, flying over the Sierras, landing in Lone Pine CA and then taking a multi-day hike over and around kearsarge pass. Epic really.


Private pilot out of Davis, work in real estate consulting, brew beer, run, & ride a motorcycle nearly everywhere I go.
