I have had an interest in aviation and photography since before graduating college (more than 20 years ago) and after graduating college joined the Air Force as a developmental engineer. While this did get me closer to aviation I still wanted more and decided to take up skydiving. I knew that I wanted to incorporate photography in my skydiving and thus as soon as I had the experience I started including video and then still cameras (DSLR) into my skydiving and after that most of my skydives were working with at least 2 cameras running.

While I don't skydiving as much anymore I did find a means to get into the air several years ago when I purchased a small drone (Mavic Air) and while I didn't fly it as much as I would like I did enjoy being able to get pictures and videos of things that I could never have done while skydiving without even leaving the ground.

Recently I relocated from Ohio cornfields to Colorado Mountains and decided now was the time to get my part 107 and also expand my fleet of drones and now have a Mini 3 Pro, a Mavic 3 Pro, and a Mavic 3 Enterprise (Multispectral with RTK) and while I do enjoy flying my drone to get neat photos and videos of nearby mountains I'm also very interested in applying my technical engineering side for photogrammetry, 2D/3D modeling, inspection (solar, roof, electrical, etc) using drones and also hope to expand my capabilities with exchangeable payloads.
