I'm a Boldmethod Co-Founder, as well as a pilot and graphic designer.

I earned my solo wings in 1999 at Aberdeen Regional airport (KABR), and my Private Pilot certificate at Grand Forks International airport (KGFK) in the same year.

In my time at the University of North Dakota, I learned how preflight in below-zero temperatures, land in 35 knot winds, and have the time of my life.

I flight instructed at UND for three years, and loved every minute of it. After UND, I flew CRJ-200s for Mesaba Airlines. Learning about the airlines during the week and jet-setting across the country on the weekends was a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Aleks Udris and I started Boldmethod in 2006, which grew out of a side business writing software for engineering companies. Since then, we've developed:

  • Software to monitor oil and gas pipelines,
  • General aviation training,
  • Software to manage nonprofit donations,
  • More general aviation training,
  • Emulators and training for the MQ-1 Reaper and MQ-9 Predator drones,
  • More general aviation training,
  • Training software for other military aircraft,
  • More general aviation training
  • And now, only general aviation training.

We do this because we love it. We want to aviation training to be awesome and fun, and we're doing our part to make it that way!

If you have an idea or suggestion, we want to hear it. Email us and tell us what you think we should do.

Last thing: give our online courses a try. There's something every pilot can learn in them.
