My interest in aviation started when I was a kid flying with my Uncle and Dad, then was rekindled when working at Coronado Airport in Albuquerque as a lineman. While studying math and physics at UNM, I earned my private pilot license exchanging flight time for washing airplanes and tutoring my flight instructor in physics.
After graduate school in Hawaii and Japan, I worked at Los Alamos National Lab and commuted to work by airplane from Albuquerque and Santa Fe. During this time, I flew various aircraft including a Cessna 206 like Michael’s and attained my Commercial and Instrument ratings. I also flew the Skydive New Mexico Cessna 180 at Belen airport, and enjoyed watching many marvelous and adventurous folks diving out the passenger door at 15,000MSL.
In 2020, I relocated to Taos to build a home, join the community, and be closer to my favorite ski area in the world. As luck would have it, Fly Taos Sky is a thriving and amazing flight school and scenic air service for which I am able to be a pilot and ground school instructor. Come fly with me and I will show you all I know about the beautiful landscape below. And after your air adventure, I’d be happy to show you my favorite spots to ski, mountain bike, and for music and dancing.
