Come fly with me...
Like the rest of you aviation fans, I LOVE airplanes! The older they are the better! My favorite airplane to fly was a 1940's Aeronca Champ that I used to rent out of Arlington Municipal ten years ago. Haven't been able to get back behind the controls since then, but I have been able to enjoy the wonderful world of flight through my photography, which has provided some darn cool opportunities over the years! I've flown in two different North American B-25 Mitchells (thanks Lyle!), T-6 Texan, UH-60 Blackhawk, UH-1H Huey, NOH-6P "Quiet One" and a few other unique birds as a result of my photography. And even more amazing that those are the people I've met along the way and the friends who have brought me along with them on their journeys.
My goal is to photograph and document as many old planes as possible. I love hearing each unique story, whether it's about how the aircraft was restored, discovered, or just how it flies, my goal is to show the world that the aviation community is THE BEST community.
I've been extremely honored to have been chosen to represent several different organizations with my work, most prominently, Snohomish County Helicopter Rescue Team. My work has also been featured in the Air Warriors program produced by The Smithsonian Channel, and numerous trade publications.
Because I simply cannot get enough aviation in my life, I was able to join The Boeing Company in 2018 where I produce training and workforce development videos and content for their engineering department, which pulls on my past work experience as a special education teacher for 10 years, experience with photography and video production, and my passion for aviation.
If you own an aircraft or are part of an organization that is dedicated to the airworthy preservation of aircraft, send me an E-mail and we'll develop a media plan to help build brand awareness and share your unique story.
