I am a Commercial ASEL/ASES Instrument Rated Pilot and Advanced Ground & Instrument Instructor and added Part 107 UAV certificate through Part 61 with the FAA. I have been flying RC as a hobby since I was a kid and enlisted in the Air Force as a C-130 Crew Chief (A&P) at 18. Aviation has always been a passion so drones just became a natural extension of this. A love of the outdoors certainly helps and I always pack a drone on a backpacking, dual sport moto or fly fishing excursions to capture the experience.
My professional experience includes capturing video and still shots of commercial real estate, utilities/ pipeline & fittings/ bridges/ mechanical inspection and SAR (CAP). I have extensive development ground up experience and working with Geotech, Surveyors, Civil Engineers and Graders including drone mapping* and interweaving GIS, .DWG, SHAPE and .KMZ files on ESRI or Google Earth. I have mostly captured Class A Self Storage, Multifamily, Daycare, Medical and Office space but have observed/ filmed many Master Planned Developments and their various uses along the way.
I am familiar with all Metro. markets in GA, FL, AL, CO, TX, NC, SC, TN and KS . Drones are very useful in identifying real time market changes and finding pockets for a use in conjunction with geospatial data. I am fluent in all ESRI products with particular detail to ARC GIS and Business Analyst, alongside demographic and inventory platforms like Yardi Matrix and REIS. If you want a closer look at a market before you expend internal resources, explore seeing it through my filter first.
