Thanks for taking an interest in me and Drone Outlook

I’ve enjoyed many professional adventures in my life, gained some unique skills, and have been influenced by some amazing mentors.

I was a paratrooper in the U.S. Army, a professional photographer, and now I embark on my next career journey as an FAA certified remote pilot.

My time in the U.S. Army was a life-changing experience

Everything that I have today I owe to the twelve years I served in the Military.

During my military career, I worked with everything from unmanned aerial vehicles to billion dollar reconnaissance satellites.

Add to that another twenty years in the defense industry, which has given me a deep appreciation for all aspects of remote sensing technology.

Photography has been a personal and professional passion my entire life.

My eclectic photography career has spanned everything from my high school newspaper to being the Director of Photography for a nationwide magazine.

I’ve been an exclusive Getty Images contributor since 2007, and lately I’ve begun to grow my stock portfolio with an renewed interest in aerial photography and video.

I’ve been a member of the drone community since 2010 when I bought my first drone – the Parrot AR.Drone. 

Since then, I’ve owned too many drones to mention. 

I have had the opportunity to fly in amazing places, and have met incredible people
