After serving as a paratrooper in the Army’s 82nd Airborne Division he began flight training in 1994. Next he began flying news helicopters in Los Angeles. Today, he’s CEO of Airborne Images, and he has over 8,500 flight hours. He’s worked all over North America on over 100 film and television projects.
