I am a detail-oriented and competent pilot, who flies with confidence and finesse in order to deliver precision services to my clients.

I started flying when I enrolled and graduated from an sUAS Mapping and Surveying Technical Training Program, and ever since then I have been honing my skills while striving to set a good example as a professional in this industry by observing FAA regulations and safety guidelines. I have developed a passion for this line of work, and have experience in most areas of drone operations.

2D mapping - Orthomosaics, NDVI (plant health, agriculture), and Elevation
3D mapping - DTM (mesh), LAS (point cloud), and Object Modeling
Inspection - Utility, Roof, and Infrastructure
Surveying - Solar and Construction
Editorial work - Aerial and ground photography and smooth 4k video (demo reel coming to my portfolio soon!).
