My uncle, who flew combat missions over Southeast Asia, was my true source of inspiration for aviation. He took me to my first air show when I was eight, and I’ve loved aviation ever since. I’ve been working as an A&P mechanic for 25+ years and have worked on just about all types of aircraft. I’ve also been a Private Pilot for 22 years and enjoy the thrill of flight. I’m a big fan of English Premier League football, a supporter of Crystal Palace FC, and I hope to return to London soon.
