My name is Lieutenant Mark R. Kurzinski, United States Navy (Ret.) I am originally from Syracuse NY where I enlisted in the Navy in 1993 and circumnavigated the world 3 times in the Aviation, Surface and Expeditionary Warfare communities culminating in 20 years of service to this country. During my tour of duty, I was fortunate to be selected to an officer commissioning program and received a Bachelor's degree in Communication/Broadcast Journalism from the University of San Diego. After retirement, I founded MidWest Drone & 3D Imaging in Cary IL blending multiple passions of flying, photography and video/audio production and editing. I am a certificated FAA multi-engine private pilot and FAA Part 107 sUAS drone remote pilot and have over 700 hours of total fixed-wing flying experience. I am the proud father of 2 boys and have been happily married for over 8 years! Thank you for reading my bio.
