I'm a newly-minted Part 107 UAS operator who is attempting to 'break into' this fast-growing industry. I'm a honorably-retired US Coast Guard military veteran who is presently working for the Seminole Tribe of Florida as their Tribal-Wide Emergency Management Coordinator (Hollywood-based). In my position, I will be developing the Seminole Tribe Public Safety Department's drone program and I anticipate to get that program rolling on or after October of this year. In the interim, I spend most of my off-time honing and improving my skills operating my personal DJI Mavic Air where I've accumulated about 100+ hours of drone operating time since purchasing this small drone over the last two months. Additionally, in a pinch, I can provide "semi-pro" photography services as I also own Canon full-frame (6D) and APS-C sized (7D) sensor cameras stemming from my time spent in North Dakota (2014 - 2016) where I followed the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) events for night photography shoots.
I have a proven track record of sustained superior performance during my service in our US military and I'm confident that this strong work ethic will also translate well into future drone projects. I'm customer service-focused, reliable, professional, and results-oriented.
My first commercial use of a drone was during a funeral ceremony for one of our fallen police officers a month ago where I was tasked in taking aerial still photographs of the outside ceremony. Indeed, I look forward to providing you the best service and the best effort to meet all your drone requirements. I will make it happen for my clients.
