I'm an editor at Boldmethod.

I'm a First Officer at Mokulele Airlines and a Certified Flight Instructor. I hold multi-engine and instrument ratings, with tailwheel, complex, and high performance aircraft endorsements. As a Commercial Aviation Major at the University of North Dakota, I'm the Student Outreach Coordinator for the Student Aviation Advisory Council. Our team is dedicated to bridging the gap between aviation faculty and students. In addition, I'm the Social Media Director for EAA Chapter 1342, one of the nation's only collegiate-run EAA Chapters.

I founded the blog "Private to Professional Pilot" shortly after beginning my flight training. Through writing about my flight training experiences step-by-step, I hope to demystify the process of becoming a pilot. Since foundation, the site has recorded over 500,000 page views, receiving visitors from over 195 countries worldwide. Follow me and read more on

I'm excited to be a part of the movement to revolutionize the way aviation training works. In a modern, technological era, the next generation of pilots should have the opportunity to utilize the best online training methods.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me via email or Twitter.
