Having worked on numerous projects for the past three years as a full-time aviator, I have developed a diverse array of experience in the commercial drone industry. Some of the highlights include: Leading a five-man ground team while conducting post-hurricane tower inspection operations after Hurricane Irma, numerous waterborne craft operations, large-scale mapping projects, aerial cinematography for a Georgia Power commercial, The Buckle Inc. as well as a music video production, consulting and training of countless students as well as several large surveying and engineering firms in the D.C. metro area. I have assisted in data procurement for several ocean-based scientific studies as well as a traffic noise and light intrusion study project. I have also provided the interactive, panoramic campus photos for Georgia Southern University's website and construction project documentation for numerous companies. My experience also includes over 400 cell tower inspections to date.
As lead pilot for a prominent aviation and consulting company I have devised the Pilot Training and Education Plan for use in training and consulting as well as airspace authorization and operational waiver support for various clients. I have also developed a standardized radio tower and cell tower inspection program, which includes shot sheets, safety protocols and best practices. I have experience with a wide range of commercial sUAS platforms as well as unique applications of drone technology including thermography. My background consists of nine years in the USAF serving as a Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) with three combat tours conducting tactical airspace deconfliction and ground operations as well as three years in Law Enforcement.
