About Me

Welcome to my information page. Please take advantage of this space to contact me, learn more about my aviation and writing experience, or just look around.

Beyond business, I am a husband and father. I enjoy sitting on my front porch, book-in-hand, being distracted from reading by my view of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Northeast Tennessee.
