I grew up in Hawkinsville, GA.. I've been an IT professional since I graduated high school, and I hold a Bachelors Degree in Computer Science. I have a wide variety of interests and experience.

Agriculture has been a big part of my life for the past fifty years. We farmed and also ran a farm service center, supplying local farmers with seeds, fertilizer, and chemicals, as well as buying, marketing, processing, and selling the crops they produced.

I've always had an interest in electronics, computers, and photography, and these interests eventually to led me to drones. I've bought 4 so far and crashed and replaced 2 while learning what not to do! I spend much of my free time learning all I can about drones, photography, and the various applications they can be used for.

So far, I've taken pictures and video of real estate for different companies. I've taken a course for mapping with drones and have used photogrammetry to produce orthomosaic maps and 3D models of terrain. I've photographed and videoed a few weddings and am looking forward to using my drones to capture life's moments. I have recently started editing photos and videos.

I'm familiar with all types of farm equipment, construction equipment, industrial sites, and power grids. I am very aware of the dangers and risks associated with each and always make the safety of others and myself my top priority.

I would love to talk to any prospective clients about their needs and what I can bring to the table to meet those needs and even suggest other ideas that you may not have thought of yet. I believe that each client engagement is an opportunity to learn, grow, and become even better. I strive to always be courteous and professional and treat everyone I encounter with respect.

I look forward to talking and flying with you!

Dirt Road Drones was very professional, did exactly what was asked and did everything in a timely manner. I will definitely hire him again if I ever need someone for that area. I couldn't have asked for a better person.

Eric did an excellent job at following instructions, and was able to capture professional images for every shot I requested. He completed the job in a very timely manner as requested, and communicated clearly at all times. I would definitely hire him again should the opportunity arise.
