His dessire at the age of 7 years old was to become a pilot, that desire never died. At the age of 47, (forty years later), and inspired by the stories of the The Tuskegee Airmen of WWII, he finally decided to fulfill his dreams of flying aircraft and of obtaining several pilot licenses, including Instrument Ratings after being inspired by a media flight he received while working as a radio personality and announcer on the air for KJR Radio, Seattle, in the Navy Blue Angel’s Commander’s Jet, an F-4 Skyhawk Two aircraft. His passion for aviation continues, as he travels and speaks to audiences of young and old telling them why their dreams are never too big, and that they are never too young or too old to obtain their childhood dreams, through the youth aviation program he founded in 2006 called “FutureAviatorsInAmerica.org.
