About Me


I’m a veteran airline pilot, biz owner who loves coffee, golf, R&B & jazz.

I hold a master’s degree in aviation/aerospace management and am an advocate of online education.

In addition, I am currently pursuing an educational doctorate (EdD) from Northcentral University. The beauty of this is I can complete the degree entirely online. You have to love technology, wifi and the Internet, which makes accomplishing one’s goals in life that much easier.

I’m an A319/320/321 captain for American Airlines and look forward to sharing my passion for aviation and a typical day from the left seat.

My views expressed in this blog are indeed my own.

Join me on my journey!
