I was born and raised on the East Coast and I am a graduate of the University of Massachusetts. Following college I spent 6 years as a pilot with the U.S. Navy, flying in various parts of the world. After leaving the Navy, I worked as a licensed securities broker in Seattle. Eventually I returned to flying and have spent 23 years as a commercial pilot. The Wood River Valley has always provided the perfect backdrop for my twin passions of fishing and water skiing, having recreated here since 1982.
